Bodies & Souls: Conversations with Sara Loewenthal & Rivky Boyarsky
Suicide: An Upstream Model of Prevention- with Gitty Francis, LMSW
Gitty Francis, LMSW, speaks to Sara Loewenthal and Rivky Boyarsky about the work she is doing for schools, camps, and organizations across the world.
Gitty is bringing mental health literacy to communities that previously never had these ever-important conversations surrounding mental health, encouraging her audience to create supports necessary for those challenged with their mental health.
Gitty uses a vivid analogy to help us understand what can be done for those struggling with the most dire challenge of all - suicide. You will walk away from this episode empowered with a deeper understanding of what YOU - a bystander can do to help those who are suicidal.
