While Suicide is a difficult public health crisis to talk about, it affects people across all cultures, populations and age groups. This Sept. 15, the City of Dublin and Dublin Police are partnering with local mental health providers, including Syntero, to offer residents a space to discuss suicide prevention as an important community conversation in Dublin. The town hall will feature presentations about debunking common myths, how to talk to someone considering suicide, and ways to support yourself or other in your life with mental health resources.
See the agenda and registration form for this town hall here.

Syntero offers comprehensive services specifically designed for the
LGBTQ+ community, provided by culturally competent staff members. During Pride
Month, Syntero celebrated the LGBTQ+ community by holding a fun event at The
Candle Lab to provide an opportunity for community members to meet program
coordinators while making candles. Twenty percent of all proceeds supported
Syntero’s LGBTQ+ programs. Later in the month, Syntero’s Family Pride Mixer
provided an opportunity for Syntero staff, program participants, potential
program participants and their families to socialize and support one another.
Syntero provides an array of LGBTQ+ services, including individual counseling, couples and family counseling,
sexual health education and yoga. Additionally, the Celebrate You! group for adolescents and the Celebrate Us! group for families and friends of members of the
LGBTQ+ community offer LGBTQ+ community members and supporters an opportunity
to socialize while addressing issues in a supportive, safe environment to lead
to positive outcomes and healthy/balanced lifestyles and choices for dealing
with identity issues.
