Library Sponsors Suicide Prevention Talk

As part of the Loudoun County Public Library’s Mental Health Awareness Month programs, there will be a special suicide-prevention panel discussion in Lovettsville tonight.

Starting at 7 p.m., psychotherapist Dr. Suzanne Nixon will present an overview of mental health issues in Loudoun. Then students leading the We’re All Human group at Woodgrove High School will discuss their efforts to curb suicide by promoting acceptance and bringing support to students in need of understanding.

A panel discussion will be led by Suzie Bartel of the Ryan Bartel Foundation.

The May 8 program will be held at the Lovettsville Library, 12 N. Light St.

Loudoun County Public Library, with support from the Suicide Prevention Alliance of Northern Virginia, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health, Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Developmental Services, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), is providing an array of programs and resources all this month.
