Alternatives to Suicide: Community Forums March 3+10

In 2010, the RLC piloted the Alternatives to Suicide group beginning in Northampton.  Funded with the support of Tapestry Health, it is one of the first peer-lead support groups in the country to address the issue of suicide. 

Based on the success of this first group (which has also presented at a statewide Suicide Prevention conference), we have been expanding including a group in Holyoke and soon to also include Greenfield.

To help the groups grow with the community, our Holyoke facilitators, Gretchen and Gineen will be hosting two community forums. Co-sponsored by the RLC and Freedom Center.

These community forums will cover topics including:
?       What is important to our community about this topic?
?       What times/days/locations work for group meetings?
?       How do we get the word out about these meetings?
?       What should meetings look like?  Format?  Topics?

Forum Dates & Times:

Thursday, March 3rd, 3 to 5pm
Bowen Resource Center
340 Main Street

Thursday, March 10th, 3 to 5pm
RLC?s Holyoke Center
187 High Street, Suite 303
