This is not easy to talk about….

 

My family has been affected.

My community has been affected.

My profession has been affected.

Suicide is an epidemic across our nation and it has been exacerbated by the COVID pandemic. Dr. Lulu, a friend and colleague, is on a mission to stop suicide now. Her Stop Suicide Summit on 9/26/20 features experts in the field speaking out on suicide prevention. The $20 cost of the summit is to raise funds for a suicide prevention non-profit.

 End the stigma.

End the shame.

End the silence.
