2. Safe Talk Training

With Adrianna Prosser
8:30–12:00 in Adams Dining Room. Must sign-up. 30 places maximum.

safeTALK offers valuable skills to everyone 15 and older and requires no formal training or prior experience in suicide prevention. It is a half-day alertness training to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

5. Everything But the Cat – One-woman theatre show

With Adrianna Prosser
1:00–2:00 p.m. in The Gait

  • Sharing stories about bereavement, loss, suicide, and mental health.
  • Adrianna Prosser performs Everything but the Cat… to raise awareness of mental health issues and the importance of ending stigma around depression and seeking help.
  • The play follows a sister’s journey through bereavement when her brother dies by suicide quite unexpectedly. At the same time her live-in boyfriend decides to break up with her, leaving her with moving boxes and her cat. Dealing with two very different types of loss, She goes through the steps of bereavement as a suicide survivor before the audience.
    The haunting “shadows of the past” are deeply explored by the playwright and are represented by silhouetted characters to suggest that under her stress, details are hazy, and ‘She’ could be anyone.
