Surviors Of Suicide Loss Day Saturday

Saturday is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, and a virtual event is planned in the Gorge to commemorate it.  YouthThink of Wasco County is hosting this year’s event on Zoom, and YouthThink’s Debby Jones says this year because of COVID the international organization could not produce a new film, so they were able to pick two short films from the past featuring nine individuals from various cultures that have dealt with losing a loved one to suicide.  There will be an opportunity for discussion, but Jones emphasizes participation in that is voluntary.  Jones adds in the past this has been an in-person event, but they are noticing the virtual opportunity has led many more people to pre-register than in the past.  It will take place from ten to noon Saturday morning, and to get access information go to the events calendar at
