In honor of Suicide Prevention Month in September, the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) is inviting you to “A Celebration of Life,” our second in a series of discussions on suicide prevention from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 20.
The event, organized by Samantha Grannum of the DBHIDS Faith and Spiritual Affairs unit and Patrick Kessel of the DBHIDS Suicide Prevention unit, will focus on issues concerning suicide and mental health within the faith community.
Let’s work together and find ways to help prevent suicide, support those in crisis, change the stigma around suicide, and celebrate the lives that have been saved. The event will include a panel of experts from a broad spectrum of knowledge and wellness to offer facts and information regarding suicide, along with a Q&A session. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Samantha.Grannum@phila.gov.
