> Hi All,
> Last night we had Cheryl Morin from the JD Foundation here to present her

> presentation and provides information about the warnings signs, risk
> factors, and language considerations in communicating with someone who is
> depressed. Each person received a folder that included handouts, brochures,
> and contact information for helpful resources.
> We had 12 people in attendance, it was a small group but that gave some of
> us time to speak about personal experiences.  Others chose not to speak at
> all but just listened.
> Attendees came away with knowledge on how to define suicidal behaviors,
> the difference between myths and facts, understanding risk factors, how to
> recognize warning signs, we learned intervention strategies, and what
> resources are available to help someone in crisis.
> If you're looking for an excellent educational program, I encourage you to
