This reminder today from my American Association for Justice to register to vote –

Friends,

Today is National Voter Registration Day. AAJ posted messages on social media reminding everyone to register to vote and to check their registrations. Click here to find your state’s registration information.
Although Election Day seems far away, it’s never too early to make sure that everyone in your network is registered to vote. As AAJ members, we fight every day for access to civil justice, but this starts with access to the ballot.

 

Please take AAJ’s initiative one step further and share, repost, and retweet this message on your personal social media accounts today! Through the power of social media, we can quickly amplify our message to protect the vote.

Thank you for all you do,

Suicide Prevention for parents – tonight at 7:30PM

 

Suicide Prevention – PARENTS Invited to attend Mon 9/23 at 7:30pm

St. Edward Church and UCC Medfield are collaborating on this important initiative, along with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention.

By Colleen M. Sullivan, Patch Mayor 
Suicide Prevention - PARENTS Invited to attend Mon 9/23 at 7:30pm
Dear Middle and High School Parents,

In collaboration with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MedfieldCSP), the faith based community in Medfield is excited to present new programming for teen peer to peer training for mental and emotional well-being and awareness.

Last June, many high schoolers participated in a focus group facilitated by Dr. Nadja Reilly, from William James College. The intent was to listen to these students to unveil some pressing issues the students may be experiencing and their root causes. Our students’ input was profound and extremely insightful. Based on the feedback from student and parent focus groups, we have started to develop programming and we would love to share this information with you.

We invite parents to learn about this new peer to peer training initiative and hear ways parents/guardians can support emotional resilience in our youth. Dr. Reilly will be presenting on Monday, September 23 at 7:30pm – 8:30pm at St. Edward the Confessor Church, 133 Spring Street, Medfield.

St. Edward Church and UCC Medfield are collaborating on this important initiative, along with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention. Please note that while the two faith communities are organizing this initiative, events are open to all parents within the Medfield community.

We hope you will join us – RSVP HERE!

If you have any questions or would like further information, please reach out to any one of us!

With gratitude, MedfieldCSP members,

Anna Mae O’Shea Brooke
