Stay: Suicide Prevention
STAY: Adult Education for Suicide Prevention is a new library initiative to provide Chatham parents and caregivers with access to the information that can help their young loved ones cope with crisis situations. The goal is to prevent suicide attempts.
School District of the Chathams, Chatham Borough Council, Chatham Township Committee, and Municipal Alliance Committee of the Chathams are working together with library staff to sponsor and present ongoing resources and programming.
In its continuing efforts to raise awareness of suicide prevention Chatham Township will host its 4th Annual Chatham Township Out of the Darkness Community Walk on Saturday, September 21 at 4:30 pm to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The event, which has attracted hundreds of participants from Morris, Essex, Union, and Somerset counties, will take place, rain or shine, at Cougar Field located at 320 Shunpike Road in Chatham Township. Participants can register as an individual, or as a team, by visiting www.afsp.org/chathamtwp.
