Conversations that Count: Let’s start a ripple to end the stigma around mental health and teen suicide in the Snoqualmie Valley

January 27, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Free

The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network is partnering with a team from Leadership Eastside to dive deeper into the critical issue of changing the conversation around mental health and teen suicide.

We are assembling individuals who have in influence in our community, and here’s where YOU come in.

Teens talk to teens and teens talk to adults who they have a relationship with.  And that’s where we want to start. In order to make a real impact on improving the mental health and wellbeing of youth in our community, reducing suicide attempts, ideation, and even deaths, we need to talk about it more and youth need to be a part of that conversation.

Please join us. Your voice is critical. Your voice is unique. Your voice will change the conversation.

Who should come?

  • Are you curious what work is happening in our community?
  • Do you want to learn about the diverse and differing perspectives within our community?
  • Do you have a network? Of friends, coworkers, teammates, classmates,  neighbors, etc?
  • Do you know even one person that could use some support in the area of depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then we need your voice.

Goals of our first meeting:

  • Connecting with individuals in the Snoqualmie Valley who care deeply about this issue
  • Now that you’ve met the group – who is missing from this conversation?
  • What’s our shared purpose? Our “why”? What connects us in a way that will make us want to do bring others into these conversations?
  • Let’s brainstorm how we can really make a change – how can we reduce the stigma around mental health issues and teen suicide in our community?
  • As an ambassador, how will you take this energy and important work into your network? How will you bring these conversations back to this group?
