For this week’s Wellness Wednesday we are grateful to be able to share the presentation from Connor’s Climb Foundation. This 1 hour training provided education to family and community on youth suicide prevention.
Thank you to the Lyme School for allowing us to use space in your building on Tuesday, November 1 for the community to participate in this hybrid program offering.

*Connor’s Climb Foundation is on a mission to provide suicide prevention education to New Hampshire youth and the community. In the aftermath of a suicide, family, friends and communities respond in different ways. When Connor Ball died by suicide in October of 2011, his family and friends decided that no one else should experience such a profound and life-altering loss. Connor’s Climb Foundation is the result of their love for Connor and their commitment to end youth suicide. Through the implementation of suicide education programs in New Hampshire schools and agencies, Connor’s Climb Foundation helps educators, students and community members foster help-seeking behaviors so that youth in need of supportive services either reach out for them, or get referred to them by a peer, coach, teacher or other trusted adult.
