MENTAL HEALTH VIRTUAL TOWN HALL
After losing his wife, Kristin Brooks Rossell-Butler, to suicide on April 7, 1998, Reese Butler founded 1.800.SUICIDE. Over the 20+ years since, the National Hopeline Network has routed more than 5 million callers to help and hope. 1-800-SUICIDE is the first hotline in the world that was effective in preventing suicide. Since the Coronavirus impacted the world in March 2020, everyone’s focus has been on staying healthy and avoiding the virus. What we cannot forget are the mental wellness affects that have taken grip as a result of the pandemic, quarantine, being alone, and fear. Many people already had these feelings prior to COVID-19, and have lost their ability to get proper help from closed college campuses or wellness centers. This “Town Hall” style event is anchored by Reese Butler himself, and features a revolving panel of mental health and suicide prevention experts. It’s catered specifically to the needs of the buyer and can be held multiple times for different groups.
