Attend Our Next “PEERVENTION” Workshop on December 8, 2018

Once a month, Hope For The Day offers a Proactive Prevention Workshop conveniently located at the Logan Square branch of the Chicago Public Library. In this workshop, we aim to educate individuals and communities on the proper resources and approaches to aiding the mental health of their peers.

Our goal is to reduce suicide rates by educating our community on how we can be allies to our peers and provide them with the most effective support. Ultimately, we hope to provide the resources to avoid crisis altogether.

The workshop is presented through lectures and discussions. We discuss the toughest obstacles to preventing suicide and teach our core elements of proactivity:

  1. To confront the leading obstacle of stigma and how it shapes individual, communal, and institutional obstacles to effective prevention

  2. To look at signs and symptoms of mental health challenges starting from the traditional point of crisis stage warning signs, to the earliest symptoms

  3. To focus on activism and understanding how we can take action to care for our    personal mental health and how we can be supportive to our peers and community.
