In light of recent losses that have impacted our community the Coalition would like to remind people that there are resources and help available for individuals who might be struggling with thoughts of self-harm and/or suicide or who may be feeling helpless or hopeless. We would also like to encourage those of you that work with vulnerable individuals to be vigilant with those that were personally affected or may identify with the situations of those who recently died by suicide.
Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have, now or in the future.
If you are worried about yourself or you are feeling helpless or hopeless, or you know someone who is, we encourage you to seek out help.
Thank you for all that you do for our community,
