A Community Mental Health Awareness Night will be held Tuesday, April 9, beginning with a resource fair at 6 PM, at the Waconia Middle School Auditorium. Kevin Briggs, a retired sergeant who patrolled the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, will be the guest speaker.
Mental health is growing concern in our communities and across the nation. It is difficult to know what to do and how to help. This free community event will provide resources to assist in knowing how to respond and includes two speakers who will share inspirational stories of hope.
Kevin will be sharing his experiences on the bridge and how he was able to convince hundreds of people to come off the rail, effectively saving their lives. In addition, the founder of LIVIN Foundation, Paul Thomas “PT” Hohag will be sharing his story. The night is sure to be great for any community member to attend. You will hear stories of hope and inspiration, as well as come away with tools that can be used daily with students, friends, and family (just about anyone!). There will also be a resource fair for attendees prior to the talk where local resources will be available to chat or share their services.
Students are welcome and encouraged to attend (middle school age and up).
This event made possible through a community partnership with the LIVIN Foundation. Proceeds are from the 2018 Ridin’ To Keep LIVIN Motorcycle Run held in Mayer, Minnesota.
