The virtual event offers hope to survivors of suicide or anyone who could use some extra hope this holiday season. Speakers will share mental health resources and answer questions. Attendees can enter to win a suicide prevention goodie bag and gift card.
The event is sponsored and hosted by the suicide prevention grant, named “Choose Life,” awarded to the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, with Dr. Martha S. Tingen as Principal Investigator. Dr. Marlo M. Vernon, co-investigator, Gina Hopf, Lindsay Mangrum and Matt Humphries are also team members.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness Augusta Family Support Group will meet immediately following at 6 p.m. for anyone who loves someone with a mental health condition and would like to attend.
