On Saturday, May 18, Hoag Mental Health Center is kicking off its Together We Prevent Suicide Series to raise awareness about suicide prevention and to reduce stigma.
The free, half-day conference will focus on empowering parents and caregivers with strategies to talk about suicide, mitigate risk, manage a psychiatric crisis and learn about self-care activities that benefit the entire family.
Special guest speakers during the event include representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Orange County, Newport Mesa Unified School District, OCDE and Orange County Health Care Agency.
There will be a resource fair onsite as well, and lunch will be provided.
Attendance is free but an RSVP is required. Contact (949) 764-6551 or email Melanie.Nguyen@hoag.org to RSVP today.
