During the September 3rd meeting, Conni Eckstein presented information concerning the nation-wide epidemic of suicide. This sad reality hits Oklahoma hard, with increased rates of suicide among youth, veterans and seniors. Conni shared her powerful story, as well as ways that we can equip ourselves to prevent suicide. If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out to the trained folks of the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK, or learn more at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org. Most importantly, be there for anyone struggling, don't be afraid to ask if they are thinking of suicide, and, if so, be there with them as they call the hotline or call on their behalf. You learned CPR just in case. Now, be ready to help save a life from suicide.
