Waldwick Stigma Free Event - Talk Saves Lives

Image
The Waldwick Stigma-Free Committee will host Talk Saves Lives, Monday, October 1st, 7:00 pm, Waldwick Public Library, 19 E. Prospect Street. This free program covers health, environmental and historical factors that can collectively contribute to an individual’s coping skills being compromised. Talk Saves Lives can help the many “gatekeepers” in our communities assess the warning signs of suicide in our families, friend groups, co-workers, and acquaintances.
Free tickets can be reserved here: https://talksaveslives2018.eventbrite.com
This program will give attendees a basic overview of suicide as a major cause of death. Attendees will gain a better understanding of suicide risk, a heightened awareness to identify warning signs, and an understanding of the importance to get at-risk individuals to life-assisting helpers in the community.
