Alternatives to Suicide Support Group - Listening Session

Thursday, April 21, 2016 -
13:30 to 15:00

Iris Place LogoJoin us to learn about and help create the Midwest’s first Alternatives to Suicide Mutual Support Group! Alternatives to Suicide is a peer support practice for voicing, sitting with, understanding, and moving through suicidal thoughts with a primary focus on mutual connection and relationships.

During our listening sessions, we want to hear thoughts from peers, providers, family and community members to help us:

  • Identify needs and current programs in the community for supporting people who have suicidal thoughts or feelings or may struggle with self-injury.
  • Reach out to individuals who may have interest in this type of group.
  • Dialogue about what this group might look like in our community.
