SUICIDE LANGUAGE TO BE DISCUSSED ON TUESDAY
WAILUKU - A licensed professional counselor will be speaking on "The Language of Suicide" at the Mental Health America in Maui County "Brown Bag Lunch" series on Tuesday at noon at the Cameron Center.
Mark Nowicki will describe the use of particular language maps and the role that these maps play in the process of suicide. In a broader sense, the maps can be part of the creation of the perception of a life of misery instead of a life of joy and meaning.
This is not a typical "suicide prevention" workshop and will not offer techniques to prevent suicide, a news release said.
Continuing education credits are available at a cost of $10 for members of the Mental Health America of Maui County and $15 for others.
For more information, call 242-6461.
