The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the nation’s leading organization bringing together people across communities and backgrounds to understand and prevent suicide, and to help heal the pain it causes. AFSP has developed an educational program to help community members and concerned adults learn more about teen suicide and how they can play a role in its prevention. Join us for a screening of More Than Sad: Suicide Prevention Education for Teachers and Other School Personnel followed by a presentation with a clinician on hand to answer questions. The program will take place at the Newton Free Library on Tuesday, April 1 at 6:30PM. View two 25-minute films that are endorsed by the National Association of School Psychologists and are listed on the Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention. Participate in a discussion based on a manual that integrates the films into a comprehensive suicide prevention program. The program is open to the public.
