Community Conversations Offer Powerful, Personal Stories
CHE's most recent Community Conversation featured the powerful, personal stories of people who have lost a loved one to suicide. "My Story: I Am a Suicide Survivor" highlighted the work of the Lincoln/Lancasster County Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) Team and was presented in partnership with the LOSS Team and the Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition (NSSPC).
Video of the first conversation in this series, "My Story: I Treated Ebola Patients," is available for online viewing here. Registration for the upcoming events on homelessness and mental health is available here.
