Talk Saves Lives Presentations
Join us after the matinee performances of Every Brilliant Thing in October for a special presentation of Talk Saves Lives, an introduction to suicide prevention, in partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Talk Saves Lives is a 30-minute presentation that gives participants an introductory view of suicide prevention. This evidence-based program was designed to help start the conversation about suicide and mental health and to provide participants with a basic understanding of what suicide is, who it affects, what we know about it and what can be done to prevent it.
Sundays in October, immediately following the matinee performance: Approximately 3 p.m.
October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
This presentation is free and open to all - you do not need a ticket to join us!
*The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is presenting Talk Saves Lives and providing suicide prevention resources as a community education program and did not provide input into the content or production of Every Brilliant Thing.
