WATERVILLE — A Suicide Awareness Discussion is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 60 Eustis Drive.

This presentation will specifically look at the risk and protective factors that apply to the LGBTQ+ community. It will be helpful to anyone who may be, or know someone who may be emotionally challenged by the current societal/cultural issues facing the LGBTQ+ community, as well as those not part of this community.

The leaders for this event will be Greg Marley, the clinical director for National Alliance on Mental Illness Maine, and Katie Taylor, who is NAMI trained in suicide awareness/mental health first aid.

Admission is free and donations will support Out and Allied Youth Theatre Group and Waterville PFLAG.
