The Difference Support Makes in Developing Resilience  

This workshop will explore aspects of suicide and mental health related issues as associated with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and explore the resilience possible through peer support and family involvement. The conversation will also address the work of Face It Foundation on working with male depression.
