Dawn Farm Education Series

Addiction and Suicide Prevention  (5652)

01/28/2014 7:30 PM - 01/28/2014 9:00 PM

“Addiction and Suicide Prevention” will be presented by Raymond Dalton, MA; Dawn Farm Outpatient Program Coordinator. There is an alarmingly high prevalence of suicide among people with addiction and people in early recovery, and the period of early recovery
from addiction is especially high risk. Family, friends and professionals are often strategically positioned to recognize potential suicidal thinking and intervene to help. This program will raise awareness of the signs of suicidal thinking and describe ways
to offer support and obtain help for people who may be contemplating suicide. Participants will learn how to recognize suicidal thinking, reach out and offer support to others contemplating suicide, obtain help when suicidal thoughts are present, and access
local and national suicide prevention and intervention resources. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. The Dawn Farm Education Series is a FREE, annual workshop series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information
about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people from getting well.
