DOWNINGTOWN, PA — SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education), West Pharmaceutical Services, and DCEF (Downingtown Community Education Foundation) to host a suicide prevention and awareness night in Downingtown, PA.

With deaths by suicide increasing and mental health challenges facing our community, education and awareness of these topics is critical to save lives. There are approximately 39 suicides in Downingtown each year and hundreds of other community members who think about suicide and attempt to take their life. “The data is clear and the impact of mental health and suicide on their community is real” said suicide prevention expert Dr. Dan Reidenberg of SAVE. “This is why we need to bring more awareness to students, parents, teachers and everyone in our community on how to help prevent suicide,” Reidenberg said.

Let’s Talk About It!™ is a free event open to anyone. It will include a local community resource fair, meal, keynote address from an international expert in suicide prevention, as well as local youth and adults who will talk on panel discussions about mental health and suicide prevention in our community.
