Harvesting Hope: Creating Mindful Connections

September 27, 2023, at Fairview Lake YMCA, 9:00AM-2:00PM
1035 Fairview Lake Road, Newton, NJ 07860

Thank you SO MUCH to all the schools, chaperones, vendors, staff, speakers, and performers who attended Harvesting Hope: Creating Mindful Connections. This was our third go around of our Youth Suicide Prevention Wellness Summits and these events just get better and better! We’re so thrilled that over 80 New Jersey students from Sussex County, all the way to Middlesex County were able to share this special day with all of us!

We’d love to give a special thank you to LeadU for sharing coping techniques and pumping the students up and Ralph Colombino and his wonderful cast of actors from Lost Angels for sharing a moving performance dealing with bullying, racism, sexuality, suicide, and anxiety. 

And of course, thank you so much to all the organizations who came to table. We appreciate how hard you all work to create a beautiful community filled with happiness, support, and understanding. It meant so much to us to see the students interacting with one another on a deeper level and remembering that they are never alone!
