The Second Annual Evening of Healing: Stories of Strength, a unique community program, will be offered free to the public on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at the Newman Center, 90 Broad Street, Plattsburgh from 6-7:30 pm.
Through a variety of different situations, everyone experiences pain and suffers unexpected loss at some time in their lives. The goal of An Evening of Healing is to open communication for attendees to learn where and how to find strength, connect with people so healing can begin, and leave with a sense of hope and purpose. Members of the panel from our first program will be in attendance as well as our new panel who will share their stories of strength.
The opening presentation will be given by Deena Giltz McCullough. Deena is an active member of our community and a strong proponent of suicide prevention and education who lost her son to suicide in 2005.
The program will be co-moderated by Jennifer Hrnjic and Dana Jeweler, both suicide survivors. Sally Meisenheimer, Life Coach and Counselor, will facilitate the panel discussion. The music will be provided by Giovanina Bucci and light refreshments will be served.
