Bridges of Hope Fellowship and GriefShare Recovery Support Group will be hosting a Suicide Prevention Training, on Thursday, March 24th at 6:30 p.m. at Bridges of Hope Fellowship in McMinnville. The training will be led by a professionally trained member of the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network. It is being provided FREE of charge.
In the United States alone, someone dies by suicide once every 16 minutes. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 and 24. But because suicide has been considered such a “taboo” subject to think or to talk about, there are a lot of misconceptions about which individuals may be at risk, about when, how and why people might consider killing themselves, and about how best to help someone who’s contemplating suicide.
This misinformation – or the lack of information altogether – often means that desperate people can’t get the help they need in times of crisis. Being well-informed about depression and suicide can help you save the life of someone you know or love! As an educator, religious leader, community leader, parent, or concerned citizen, you can make a difference with the RIGHT information.
