We have many successes to celebrate during the luncheon including:
· A strengthened Partnership with several new members representing key sectors of the community, including the new Senior Services sector.
· A significant increase in the number of community members trained to be alert and aware of our friends, colleagues, family members, and others who may be having thoughts of suicide and how we can respond and keep them safe.
· The successful launch of the first “Hope and Honor Walk” for suicide prevention and awareness.
· The EPIC (Empower Peers, Inspire the Community) Youth Coalition began a second year with youth representing Don Pedro High School, Tioga High School, Summerville High School, Sonora High School, Gold Rush Charter School, and Mountain Oaks Charter School.
There are many challenges ahead and we need support from the community to continue our good work. The Annual Holiday Luncheon is one way we gain support. I am grateful for the many ways you support this event and the YES Partnership. Thank you!
