The Suicide Crisis – What Can I Do? - Webinar
Suicide rates in the United States have been climbing for 20 years, following a 15-yearperiod of decline. Rates are increasing in almost all demographic groups. This was true even before the pandemic.Did you know that suicides are often preventable? On Tuesday, April 13, at 7:00 pm, our Director of Adult Education and Family Life, Dr. Dale Wisely, will be on YouTube Live to give straightforward ways to communicate with those who we worry may be suicidal. Dr. Wisely is a clinical psychologist with more than 35 years of experience as an educator on mental health topics, including depression and suicide.There are not enough mental health professionals, nor is there adequate access to mental health care, to address this national crisis. However, all of us may be able to help prevent suicide by being willing to ask our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members questions when we are concerned that they may be struggling with thoughts of hurting themselves.Please consider viewing this 30-minute program, even if you have not yet encountered this concern in your life. The program will be recorded and available on the Prince of Peace YouTube channel for viewing after the live broadcast.
