Thanks to all who walked on JUNE 8!
The Living Works Community Walk for Suicide Prevention wants to thank everyone who walked with us, everyone who registered, everyone who donated funds, their time and effort to make the 2013 walk a success!....
See photos taken by walkers on our Facebook photo album.
The funds we raised will allow us to offer local suicide “first aid” intervention training (see sidebar at right), and grief support to those who’ve lost loved ones to suicide. Long-range goals include attracting mental health care professionals to treat at-risk individuals locally, and educating and engaging the community in addressing reasons that drive people to consider suicide.
We've provided ASIST® intervention trainings, and in 2012 brought Jordan Burnham to IVCC to share the stirring account of how he survived his own attempted suicide, and how he went on to recovery, and to assisting others. Your participation in the Walk allows us to continue these efforts. Together, we can all make a difference!
