As part of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, Brazil's Yellow September, a time to raise awareness on this urgent and stigmatized topic. Today I went to "AEVP Renato Gonçalves Rodrigues" detention center in Americana to talk with the institution’s staff members about "Suicide“.
Always an excellent opportunity to talk about such an important and current topic.
In addition to shifting public perception, we use this month to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is to ensure that individuals, friends, and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and seek help.
The audience actively engaged with the discussion, which made the event even more valuable.
A huge thank you to all who made this event possible and to the audience. A special thank you to warden Ewerton, Psychologie intern Izabela and supervisor Bruno for the invitation and great opportunity.
You can always count on me when needed!
