Join the Suicide Prevention Alliance of Northern Virginia (SPAN) in a conversation on how we can all strengthen emotional well-being and resilience in these unprecedented times. The pandemic’s economic and health impact has propelled public discussions on equity, isolation, mental health, and the importance of suicide prevention. A new national study of U.S. adults found 81% believe suicide prevention should be a national priority and 52% are more open to talking about mental health as a result of COVID-19.
Our panel will discuss how we can continue to build our individual and collective resiliency and equip you with some ways to talk about mental health with your friends, families, and neighbors.
This event is being held in recognition of September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and Older Virginians Mental Health Month.
This virtual session will be held Tuesday, September 29, 2020 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
