Suicide Talk; A Conversation to Create Awareness 

Due to the high number of requests for this session as a webinar, we are happy to announce that it is going to be made available for free thanks to the generous sponsorship of Columbine United Church.

  • Many young people are struggling right now. They are missing major milestones in their life, missing the face-to-face connections with their friends, missing the activities and events that give them a sense of achievement and success. The uncertainty of life and disruption of what they know as “normal” can create feelings of anxiety and depression and those feelings and thoughts might lead to suicidal thinking.
  • For adults, the same can be said. Many are struggling right now with the uncertainty of their job, their health, and the health of their family. Additionally, the concern of financial loss and what impact that can have. The uncertainty of life and disruption of what they know as “normal” can create feelings of anxiety and depression and those feelings and thoughts might lead to suicidal thinking.

We CAN do something for the people that we are concerned about. Let’s talk about suicide and ways we can be aware of risks and warning signs. More importantly, let’s talk about what we can do to help keep someone safe.

Lori will be hosting two free webinars. One will focus on our concern for young people. Another will focus on adult concerns. Please register for this live webinar. Space will be limited so register early.
