Panel Presentation on Suicide at TCSPP
NRCI hosted a panel on the stigma of suicide at the Chicago School, and it was met with great attendance from the school community. The panel presentation was moderated by NRCI’s own Associate Director Erica Rumpel, and the panelists were: Jessica Mead (Intake Coordinator and Therapist for the LOSS Program), Mary Ann Rowan and Judy Nolan (survivors and volunteer facilitators from the LOSS Program), and Steve Moore (Board of Directors Member and survivor from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention). The information and emotional panel drew questions from the crowd, while providing moving and helpful insights for the students.
NRCI will be hosting another panel next Tuesday, April 16, at TCSPP on the stigma of not having hair (alopecia, chemotherapy, and trichotillomania).
