Ponca City Now - February 27, 2016 9:54 am

A community forum will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 5, at Hospice of North Central Oklahoma, 445 Fairview Ave.

“Empowering Communities in the Aftermath of Suicide” will provide education regarding the impact of suicide on communities, strategies for healing and prevention, and an interactive question and answer panel.

“This program is designed to provide an honest, candid conversation for the general public, health professionals, educators, and community stakeholders,” said Stella Shoff, MS, facilitator of the workshop.

The workshop is being provided free and the public is invited.

“We honestly have no idea how many people may choose to attend, so in order to provide adequate materials we are asking people to register their names and the number of people attending by emailing [email protected] or by calling 918-338-9737 and leaving a message,” she said.
