Our hope is there is no need for suicide survivor support. Truthfully that is not realistic. There are support groups around us that can help. Locally Heart of the Cumberland is a great resource.
Awareness is critical in overcoming suicide in our community. We need to be observant for people who are at risk. What does "At Risk" mean and look at in different demographic groups. Whether you are a parent, teacher, church worker or friend, we all need to be aware of others around us.
At DSSP we want each and everyone to know that they matter. Everyone is somone's son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father, aunt, uncle, neice, nephew or some relation. When people are depressed they believe the lie that they do not matter. There are many reasons for depression, stresser events and trigger events. The key is to educate the public for the warning signs of suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
Where there are people in need, we’ll be there lending a hand, a smile, and an encouraging word.
Maintaining healthy, happy environments is an important, and often neglected part of our work. We work with local schools and churches in encouraging the students.
“If you teach a man to fish...” Education gives everyone the tools they need to succeed through their lives. Many of the tools are free and can be used by anyone. Take a QPR class or invite us to your group. We meet with a variety of groups including teachers, Scouts, church groups and social organizations.
