Our next Community Night will be held on:

October 21st, 2014
6:00pm - 7:30pm

Featuring a presentation by Counselor Paul Mehaffey

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.  

Depression and other mood disorders are the number-one risk factor for suicide, but alcohol and drug abuse, even without depression, are a close second. In fact, some research has suggested that the greatest predictor of suicide is alcoholism, not a psychiatric diagnosis. Because alcohol and drug abuse are leading risk factors for suicidal behavior and suicide, clinicians should maintain an awareness of this fundamental concern.  An overview of suicide, risk, and its implications will be discussed during this presentation.

Speaker will begin at 6:30pm sharp

If possible, please RSVP by October 14th:
