Community Event

In the Wake of Suicide

South Roanoke United Methodist Church | 2330 S. Jefferson St., Roanoke VA

Please join the second in a series of Community Conversations presented by the Community Grief and Loss Center. Family Service of Roanoke Valley and Carilion Clinic Hospice offer a chance to listen and be heard. Learn why talking about suicide may help you or someone else deal with their loss, and could be a good first step toward preventing suicide. Talking to teens and young people is especially challenging and important. Join fellow survivors of suicide, community members and mental health care providers to begin breaking the silence on suicide.
