Who should attend?
Anyone who is interested in increasing awareness and reducing stigma around suicide and behavioral health.
What's going on?
We will show the documentary “The Ripple Effect.” This documentary features Kevin, a man that took action to end his life and lived to tell his story. This is his story about advocacy and hope as it relates to increasing awareness and reducing stigma around suicide. Local behavioral health vendors will share information about their services. After the documentary we will have an opportunity to hear from a panel and engage in a community dialogue about suicide.
Why should I attend?
Connect with others that share a concern about behavioral health. We will be providing snacks, so please register by November 27, 2019.
What does it cost?
