World Suicide Prevention Day: Talk Saves Lives & Light a Candle
September 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
To honor World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10th, AFSP Nevada is hosting a free public presentation of Talk Saves Lives, a community-based presentation that covers the general scope of suicide, the research on prevention, and what people can do to fight suicide. Attendees will learn the risk and warning signs of suicide, and how together, we can help prevent it. Learn more about AFSP Nevada and our work at afsp.org/nevada
To conclude the presentation, we will participate in a world wide event called “World Suicide Prevention Day Light a Candle Near a Window at 8 PM.” This event encourages everyone everywhere to Light a Candle near a Window at 8 PM to show your support for suicide prevention, to remember a lost loved one, and for the survivors of suicide. All participants are welcome to bring photos to honor their loved ones lost to suicide for this event. Learn more about the world wide event at https://www.iasp.info/wspd2019/light-a-candle/
We hope you will join us for World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10, 2019!
