Presenting with the NAN Project

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to present at the 18th Annual Restraint & Seclusion Prevention Forum. I was so lucky to speak on an issue so near to my heart, alongside other amazing peer mentors from the NAN Project. I am so grateful to the Department of Mental Health- especially Janice Label!

It was a busy day & from there, we headed to the 15th Annual Suicide Prevention Day where the NAN Project premiered their viniets- 13 Reasons Why to talk about suicide, which 13 Reasons to Fly is so grateful to be a part of! Thank you to everyone that came out yesterday, this is the start to not just prevention, but one day elimination.

New Chapter! Worcester IRTP

Huge thank you to Angelia, her team, & all the youth at the Worcester Recovery Center! We had a great day speaking with staff about what they can do to help residents while taking care of themselves. We also had a discussion with parents on what we can do to Best support their struggling children. Most importantly, we had an activity with the youth and it gave me hope to hear some of their stories and get to connect with many of them. They made up their own 13 Reasons and we discussed how we are the future and we can shift stigma and shatter labels.I’m so happy with how today went: Thank you Worcester IRTP!
