Event description

Description

PEERvention is Hope For The Day's shorthand for Peer-to-Peer Proactive Suicide Prevention. The PEERvention Workshop is designed to educate you on the obstacles, tools, and strategies to enable proactive and effective mental health care as individuals and communities. Hope For The Day's pioneering program focuses on reducing suicide rates by disrupting and eliminating the highest risk factors for reaching a stage of mental health crisis. The biggest obstacle to effective prevention is the silence of stigma.

Our free monthly education opportunities are made possible through the support of Partners in Prevention, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Banyan Treatment Center.

Please register to attend this free presentation, though walk-ins are welcome.

The August PEERvention 4-hour workshop is sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is the nation's largest non-profit dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide and has partnered with HFTD for many education and outreach opportunities as Partners in Prevention, helping to make our monthly education opportunities possible.

We will also be celebrating this partnership later this month with a very special bonus Conversations Cafe on Wed. 8/28 from 6:30-8pm. Conversations Cafe is a monthly live podcast recording at Sip of Hope Coffee Bar featuring education and open forum dialogue on the intersections of Mental Health within our communities.

For this special episode, we will talk to members of the AFSP team about their big annual fundraiser, the Chicagoland Out of the Darkness Walk on Sat. 9/21, HFTD x AFSP's history as Partners in Prevention, and more. The brand new Sip of Hope Resource Wall, made possible by AFSP's generous support, will be officially unveiled at the top of the program. Come join the conversation. We are in this together.

*You can listen to past Conversations Cafe podcasts at Anthologies of Hope!*

Together, we can prevent suicide, reminding everyone IT'S OK NOT TO BE OK.

*Note: there is free limited parking in the Logan Square Library parking lot.

Complimentary coffee will be provided by Sip of Hope. Additional refreshments will be provided.
