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, Banyan Treatment Center, and Janssen.

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

The December PEERvention 4-hour workshop features Partners in Prevention, Eating Recovery Center and Insight Behavioral Health Centers. Eating Recovery Center’s mission is to provide the very best care to patients, families and providers of care in the treatment of, and recovery from, eating disorders and related conditions. Insight Behavioral Health Centers - with locations in California, Illinois, Ohio, Texas and Washington – offers higher levels of care for children, adolescents, adults and their and families facing serious emotional and behavioral health concerns. They will be giving more information about the services and supports they provide at the top of the workshop.

Eating Recovery Center and Insight Behavioral Health Centers will also be sponsoring drinks for December's Conversations Cafe podcast recording at Sip of Hope the week before, Thurs. 12/12 from 6:00-8:00pm. Come join the conversation and have a delicious drink, compliments of ERC & Insight.

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.
