More than 30,000 people in the United States die by suicide every year. It is this country's 11th leading cause of death, and the third leading cause of death among people ages 15-24. Suicide is not about wanting to die, but about a powerful need for pain to end. People choose suicide because they feel unable to cope with feelings of pain, hopelessness, helplessness, isolation, and uncertainties. Studies indicate that the best way to prevent suicide is through the early recognition and treatment of depression and other illnesses such as addiction that lead to suicidal tendencies. This skills training event will help clinicians sharpen their skills in the areas of identification, prediction and assessment. Emphasis will be placed on clinical prevention strategies. In cases where suicide has occurred, the method for a post-review or psychological autopsy will be discussed. CEs offered, please check the website for more information
NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
