Virtual Suicide Prevention Forum and Training

The Boulder Chapter of Hadassah wants to spread the word about actions that all of us can take to help prevent suicide.

On Thursday, October 21, 2021, from 7:00-8:30 pm, please tune in to a virtual Suicide Prevention Forum, where four community leaders will share their knowledge, experience, and resources. The speakers will be Jay Winstead, LCSW of Mental Health Partners; Rabbi Fred Greene of Har Hashem; Andi Jason of Rise Against Suicide, and mother of teen lost to suicide; and Eve Lowinger, LCSW of Jewish Family Service. This forum is free and open to all who want to learn the signs of suicide, how to respond and provide support, and how to access help.

On Tuesday, November 9, 2021, from 7:00-8:30pm, Jay Winstead, LCSW of Mental Health Partners will deliver a virtual, evidence-based suicide prevention training called QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer). This emergency response training to help someone in crisis includes the three steps that anyone can take to save a life.  This training is free and open to all.

For any questions: email boulder@hadassah.org  or call 720-526-2004.
