VOICES April Highlights


Dear Families and Friends,

Once again, our country has been shaken by the recent shooting of innocent children and adults at The Covenant School in Nashville. Our heartfelt thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims during this devastating time. We are offering resources below and our assistance to help the community. This tragedy highlights that it is incumbent upon all of us to engage in the efforts to address the issue of gun violence that is of epidemic proportions in the United States.

April is Stress Awareness Month and we are proud to offer several programs and links to information on how to manage stress. Since spring is a time for rebirth and new beginnings, the theme of this month’s Mindful Moments is “Awakening Your Inner Self.”

Life Coach Tracy Fox received rave reviews on her inspirational presentation this week. We hope you will join us when she returns this month for Happy Self Part 2: Let’s Make Dreams Come True! During this interactive workshop Tracy will provide a live coaching experience with a few lucky workshop participants.

As a follow up to our previous presentation on Suicide Awareness, we are welcoming back Maureen Underwood and Marney Rhoda for a presentation on Offering Support After Loss Due to Suicide. They will share their decades of experience on how to support family and friends after a tragic loss.

During this time of renewal we wish each of you a peaceful Passover, Easter, and the second half of Ramadan. We hope to see you at our upcoming programs! Feel free to contact our office at 203-966-3911 if we can be of assistance.

With warm regards,
Mary Fetchet & the VOICES Team

The death of a family member or friend by suicide is a devastating loss. Family members often ask themselves: why, what did we miss, and how do we put the pieces of our lives back together? For those in friendship or community circles, offering thoughts and prayers is not enough. There is the personal challenge of balancing one’s own sense of loss with questions of how to support others. Ms. Underwood and Ms. Rohda will share their decades of expertise on how to balance one’s own sense of loss with questions of how to support others.
