This coming Sunday, September 17, we welcome a special guest speaker for a forum on suicide prevention. Please join poet, artist, humanism-in-medicine awardee and child psychiatrist Dr. Diane Kaufman at 10:15 am in the Nativity Hall. The title of Dr. Kaufman’s talk is Hope, Healing, & Holding On: A Suicide Prevention Awareness Presentation. Dr. Kaufman will discuss warning signs of mental-health distress and illness, how to maintain safety and nurture resilience, seeking help and finding resources, and what led to her launch the Hold On Campaign for Suicide Prevention.
All adults are welcome to attend this forum as well as older teenagers with their parents’ knowledge. Middle-school youth and young children are invited to the mural area for snacks and crafts during the 10:00 hour.
