It's hard to know what to say to someone who is coping with a death by suicide. During an intimate, open, and emotional presentation on Monday night,
Family Service Center
hosted a presentation to help members of our community learn to respond, support one another, and begin to heal after an unimaginable loss.
Several speakers bravely shared their personal stories of losing family members to suicide, and a few attendees raised their hands to do the same. Thank you all for opening up to help everyone better understand suicide and stop the stigma that comes along with it.
CATCH encourages everyone to continue this conversation. If you know someone who is struggling or dealing with a loss, it's ok to acknowledge their pain, ask what they need, and let them know you are available for them.
Thank you Northbrook United Methodist Church
for opening your doors for this event.
