Rev. Sheila R. Everett will facilitate a discussion and information session about Suicide and the myths and misconceptions surrounding this subject. Many people believe they shouldn't mention suicide to someone who is depressed and potentially suicidal because this could put the idea in their heads. Join us on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 7:00 to 9:00 at the Universal Church of the Master, as we dispel this myth, along with other commonly held beliefs and discuss how to support the suicidal person. Learn how to discern when someone talking about suicide requires more support than you can provide in your role as ministers, family, friends and community members. Join this interactive and informative discussion on the basics of recognizing, assessing and responding to a suicidal crisis.
