HopeNet of Carpinteria to Host Suicide Prevention Forum

Local experts will be on hand for the June 21 event in Carpinteria

HopeNet of Carpinteria will be sponsoring a suicide prevention forum from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 21 in Carpinteria’s City Council Chambers, 5775 Carpinteria Ave.

HopeNet of Carpinteria, a recently formed group of concerned citizens, provides education and resources to prevent suicide. The vision of HopeNet is to lessen the number of attempted or completed suicides in our community through information, support and advocacy.

Community members are encouraged to attend to learn about suicide prevention. The warning signs for those at risk of suicide, how to help and what resources are available will be discussed. A question-and-answer session will follow the brief presentation.

Local experts will be on hand and suicide prevention wallet cards will be distributed. Spanish translation provided.

For more information, call Jack Hurley at 805.684.7373 or Becki Norton at 805.705.7933, or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
