The National Alliance on Mental Illness in Maine (NAMI-Maine) will be hosting a free Community Presentation on Suicide Prevention and Response at the Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School on Monday, April 1st from 6 to 8PM.

Greg Marley, the Clinical Director of NAMI-Maine will be conducting the presentation. He has over 25 years of practice in the field of community mental health. No registration is required and light refreshments will be provided.

When a Suicide happens in our community, the shock and grief makes everyone feel less safe; when the loss involves a young person, our concern over safety grows.

The Ellsworth School Department invites you to a presentation in suicide prevention and response as discussion will talk about the grief feeling following a suicide; how to care for ourselves and our children in the aftermath of this tragedy.

The presentation will prepare families and the community as a resource for suicide prevention for anyone at risk. Suicide prevention is up to all of us. Now more than ever, we need to know what we can do to support our community.
