Family & Friends,

As most of you know I currently work as one of the Training & Outreach Coordinators at Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services Orange County. But as many of you also know, my journey with Didi Hirsch MHS began well before I worked here. Six years ago I lost my amazing brother, Manuel, to suicide and since then I felt the need to do something bigger than myself in hopes to spread awareness and help others. And a year later, after much research I found Didi Hirsch’s Alive & Running 5K for Suicide Prevention.
So here we are in year five of participating in this amazing event, one in which I finally did not feel alone and one that I will forever do in honor of my brother. This will also be my second year participating as a member of Didi Hirsch’s staff and along with the amazing OC SSS (Orange County Survivor Support Services) team, we would like to invite you to join our team on Sunday, September 29th for this year’s Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention!

Your support helps:

- SAVE LIVES by training crisis counselors for our 24/7 multilingual Crisis Line, where calls have quadrupled in the last 10 years;

- STRENGTHEN THE SAFETY NET by teaching more students, teachers, parents, firefighters, police officers and mental health professionals to recognize and respond to warning signs;

- PROVIDE HEALING by offering more therapy and support groups to suicide attempt and loss survivors, and special groups for teens bereaved by suicide;

- ADVANCE THE FIELD by partnering with university researchers developing and testing new programs in suicide prevention.

Founded in 1958, Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center has innovated many of the strategies that are used at other centers around the United States—and world. In response to rising demand, Didi Hirsch relocated its Center to a new building in Century City last year. Since we opened the doors, many people have seen the sign and come in for help.

With your support, we can save more lives! Please register, donate or sponsor today!
Let's do this! Can't wait to see you and make a difference together!

With love and gratitude,
Joanna
