Nursing students to participate in International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day Conference

GRCC Nursing Mental Health Nursing Students will be partnering, as we have for the past 11 years, with the Survivors of Suicide Support Group by participating in the International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day Conference on Nov. 19 at the Applied Technology Center. Participants can register at the conference on Saturday, or notify with their intent to attend the conference. The registration begins at 9 a.m. in the atrium of the ATC. We will have two speakers from our community, Christy Buck and Al Heystek, who will be addressing prevention efforts and ways to heal from the trauma of losing a loved one to suicide. A box lunch will be provided. There is no charge for this conference. During lunch we will view a video produced by the AFSP. Following the video, we will hear about the Suicide Prevention Grant at GRCC by Lynnae Selberg. Please consider joining us for this important event. This is valuable for professionals in addition to those trying to cope with the loss of a loved one. Survivors are encouraged to bring a photo of their loved one for the Memory Table.
