About this event

Please join us for an incredible in-person opportunity to learn proven techniques to open up the conversation about suicide and offering mental health support. Joyce Bruggeman, Executive Director of Survivors of Suicide Loss will help lead this training.

We will also hear from Amanda Matlin, an incredibly strong, young adult, who sadly lost her 23 year old brother earlier this year. We are so fortunate to have Amanda share with all of us her powerful story of pain, loss and now focusing on hope, as she honors her brother's legacy.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. QPR training is designed to give members of the general public the basic skills necessary to recognize the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

Joyce Bruggeman is the Executive Director of Survivors of Suicide Loss. She was employed at CSU San Marcos for eleven years, lastly as the Executive Assistant to the President. Losing her husband to suicide in 2008 set her life on a new course. Within a few years of his death, Joyce left the university to pursue more opportunities to work towards suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Joyce speaks throughout Southern California to educate, enlighten, and reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues and suicide. Additionally, she teaches QPR (Question, Persuade and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for suicide prevention, facilitates mental health support groups, and is a Certified Mental Health Coach. Joyce also sits on the board of the Community Alliance for Healthy Minds.
