LGBTQ Symposium Pic

LGBTQ Cultural Competency Symposium

Gaia Hotel, 4125 Riverside Place, Anderson. 10am - 3pm

LGBTQ older adults have experienced and continue to experience discrimination due to their sexual orientation and  gender identity.  They often avoid or delay healthcare, or  conceal their sexual and gender identity from health  providers and social service professionals for fear of  discrimination.

 If you are interested in building a system of care which is  non-discriminatory and welcoming to older adults of all sexual  orientations and gender identities, this symposium is for you. 

Lunch is included.  Please register by September 19th.

November is National Suicide Loss Survivor Month

Losing someone to suicide is a unique kind of loss.  It's hard to talk about and, unless you have lost someone this way, it can be difficult to imagine the confusion and the pain that inevitably follow.

November 19th is Suicide Loss Survivor Day.

Each year, The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) offers a documentary for survivors of suicide loss.  This year's film was "Family Journeys: Reclaiming Life After Loss".  View the trailer.

You can view previous year's documentaries by clicking here.

Check back for updates on AFSP's National Suicide Loss Survivor Day event for 2017.
