Coinciding with Suicide Prevention and Depression Awareness Months, the Library Committee is pleased to introduce a new collection of books, many of which are on display on the kiosk, addressing the questions and needs of those dealing intimately with these challenges and those supporting friends and loved ones. The collection was developed through a generous grant by the Temple Sinai Women of Reform Judaism. Below is a sample of the books in this evolving collection.
Why People Die by Suicide and
No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One.
Mental Health Challenges:
The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression and
Madness: A Memoir of Mental Illness and Family Secrets
Passages in Caregiving: Turning Chaos into Confidence and
How to be a friend to a friend who's sick.

Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots, by Jessica Soffer, an Oprah recommended read, which she describes as "a profoundly redemptive story about loss, self-discovery, and acceptance."
