When a neighbor’s tractor or car gets stuck, you don’t hesitate to help. But when you see a family member or friend stuck in a rut—and possibly suicidal—it can be daunting to try and help and can leave you feeling powerless.
Suicide is a significant public health issue in Minnesota. It involves the tragic loss of human life and causes agonizing grief, fear, and confusion in families and communities. The impact can even extend across generations.
The Chatfield FFA Chapter in partnership with the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation will be using proceeds raised from this run to host a safeTALK Training locally. This training focuses teaches in-depth skills you can learn in half a day. You’ll learn how to recognize someone having thoughts of suicide, how to engage them, and how to make sure they get help. This evidence-based training is effective for people as young as 15.
Join us Saturday September 17 at 1:30pm in the Chatfield city park to raise awareness for mental health!
