This month's gathering we have invited clinical psychologist Dr. Lindsay Ip and registered nurse Sophia Cheng from Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) to discuss with us how to prevent suicide. We know that prolonged stress, and a loss of hope for the future, could lead to thoughts of giving up, untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide. As a preventive measure, let’s get together to learn how to prevent suicide. In this gathering, we will watch a video, followed by questions and discussion. Everyone is welcome.
