Description

Tackle Life's Challenges: Part II -- Suicide Prevention Community Workshop

When restful sleep is hard to come by, a work or home transition is challenging, or grief grabs hold of you or a loved one, talk it out. You’ll find many people who care and can relate. No one has all the answers, but honest talk about these issues is how we move toward solutions.

The Verdant Health Commission and our partners are gathering on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019 to get the conversation started.

This is a 2-part event, and community members are welcome to participate in one or both parts. This registration page applies only to Part II (described below) of the program. Part I does not required pre-registration.

Part I

There’s strength in taking care of yourself, as we’ll hear from Seattle Seahawks Legends Jordan Babineaux and Sean Locklear, who both played for the Seahawks from 2004-10. Their NFL careers proved them to be strong, both mentally and physically. But it doesn’t matter how strong you are when life goes in an unexpected direction and you find yourself in a tough position. Learn how both men went from tackling players on the field to tackling life’s challenges.

Hear their stories:

Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019 from 10-11 a.m. at Edmonds Center for the Arts

  • All are welcome at this free event. No pre-registration required for Part I of the program.

Part II

When a loved one or peer seems to be spiraling into a dark place, we sometimes worry about suicide. But we aren’t sure what to say or how to act. Learn how to help that person through LEARN® SAVES LIVES, a training developed by Forefront Suicide Prevention. The five simple LEARN steps empower individuals to help others move in the direction of hope and recovery.
