Details from DPTV:
Suicide – it’s a frightening word. It’s a subject we often don’t want to talk or even think about it.
Sometimes, we hesitate because we don’t know what to say about suicide or how to respond when somebody we know is at risk.
There is a place to get help this week from people who are experts on suicide awareness and prevention, who have knowledge and experience they wish to share.
The fourth annual Kevin’s Song Conference on Suicide: Advocacy in Action is taking place this Thursday through Saturday at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth. It is three days of talks, panels and honest discussion of the crisis and what can be done to help those in need.
The program is designed for educators, mental health professionals, parents, students, veterans, policymakers, survivors and anyone else who has been touched by suicide or is in contact with people who are dealing with depression or other emotional issues.
Come one day or three. You will hear from people who can explain best practices in suicide awareness and prevention and share creative, innovative programs that are making a difference.
