Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 6:30 p.m.  Stepping Stones of Rockford

Topic:  Suicide Prevention and Suicide’s Impact on Survivors

Presenter:  Mary Gubbe Lee,  MS, LCPC, Training Coordinator, Illinois Center of Excellent for Behavioral Health and Justice and NAMI Board Member

Presenter: Xavier Whitford,  Mental Health Advocate, Mental Health First Aid Instructor and NAMI Board Member

September is National Suicide Prevention Month.  It’s not what you know about suicide but what you need to know.  Please join us and welcome both Mary and Xavier. 

Mary will open and speak about the alarming increase of suicide among our neighbors and the entire U.S.   It is the 10th leading cause of death among Americans.  She will share important facts and dispel the myths and the shame surrounding suicide.

On a very personal note Xavier will speak to us about her family's heartbreaking loss and struggles.  She and her husband are now both mental health advocates and have shared their story and have touched many lives here in the Rock River Valley.

One (1) CEU is available through The Illinois Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health and Justice for LSW, LCSW, LPC, LCPC, LMFT and Psychologists.
