Solvista is gearing up for our September 2022 Suicide Prevention Month awareness campaign, fundraising and free training. This year, our internal suicide prevention team created an original awareness campaign called, Be the one! The campaign message encourages each of us to reach out to people we know or encounter who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts and start a conversation which can make all the difference in a person knowing someone cares and that there is hope. It’s up to all of us!
Community members who want to donate to support local suicide prevention efforts can give at our website, Home - Solvista Health. Local businesses in our four-county area have stepped up to join us in raising funds. We’d love to have as many businesses join us as possible to help spread the campaign messaging and raise awareness.
In addition, we are hosting a free QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) suicide prevention training at the Abbey in Cañon City for community members on September 15, at 9 am. The training is being funded with donations from our September 2021 suicide prevention fundraising. Community members can register at Eventbrite. Breakfast will be provided, seating is limited.
We hope community members will join us in spreading the campaign message, Be the One! Don't forget to sign up for the free training!
