The Other Side of Suicide

Stage: Jewel's Inspire Lounge

Date & Time: Aug 21, 2021 3:00pm - Aug 21, 2021 3:30pm

Suicides decreased by almost 6 percent last year during the COVID-19 pandemic, the sharpest drop in 4 decades. Experts say this may be due to the sense of community belonging as the nation and world braced itself against Covid-19. Mental Wellness is the key to physical wellness. As people feel they belong to a group they have a renewed sense of purpose. This session is designed to show how you can build your own community without the need for a pandemic to bring people together and chronicles how a young student from Jewel's Inspiring Children Foundation went from suicide to smiles, and how others can do the same.
