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 September PEERvention 4-hour workshop is sponsored by NAMI Chicago. NAMI Chicago is the local Chicago affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. They are one of the largest, most active NAMI affiliates in the country, with full-time and part-time staff, graduate level interns, and dedicated weekly volunteers. They offer referrals, education, and support through their Chicago Helpline, which can be reached at 833-NAMI-CHI (833-626-4244) Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm. They also offer education courses, trainings and support groups for families and individuals. The mission of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Chicago is to provide hope and improve the quality of life for those whose lives are affected by mental illness. NAMI Chicago has collaborated with Hope For The Day on many outreach and education initiatives and we are proud to spotlight them this month as Partners in Prevention.

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.
