The Mental Health Association in Niagara County is adding a new suicide survivor’s support group to its offerings. The new group will meet every Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Niagara County Community College in Building E, Room 106, beginning Wednesday, Nov. 16.
The group is free of charge and is open to anyone who attempted, but did not complete suicide, or for any family members who had a loved one complete suicide. Public transportation to NCCC is available by the NFTA via route No. 59.
“Niagara County has a suicide death rate almost twice as high as the rest of New York state. So, we want to thank the Shaun Rocco Foundation, Niagara County Community College, and the Niagara County Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services for providing the support and technical assistance in getting this group started,” MHA Executive Director Daniel Colpoys said.
Interested participants can call the support groups’ facilitator, Chris Warden, at 716-425-1458, or email at [email protected] to register or learn more.
It is the mission of The Mental Health Association in Niagara County Inc. to promote mental wellness by sponsoring and implementing advocacy, education and community service programs.
