Delaware County Suicide Prevention Coalition Hosting Trainings

The Delaware County Suicide Prevention Coalition is hoping you’ll take advantage of a special training this week.

The Coalition is holding trainings this week to teach you how to respond if someone comes to you with thoughts of suicide.

Jessica Pape, who serves as the Student Director at theStone Church in Manchester, says she’s approached on a regular basis by local teens who are struggling with their mental health.

Pape and her cousin, Stefanie Dingbaum, launched the Delaware County Suicide Prevention Coalition in August. The Coalition encourages community members to join their efforts in reaching those struggling with mental health. After working to raise awareness in September, they’re now holding trainings this week.

A training is being held tonight from 5:30 to 7 pm and again Wednesday from 11:30 to 1 at theStone Church in Manchester.
