    About the tour.


    SISFI host our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour Jan.4th-31st 2015 across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs, healing, resources and support to people facing serious life and emotional challenges, human suffering with suicide ideations, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide. This tour follows up on the great work with accomplished with the Sept. 17th – Oct 3rd 2014 tour where we hosted 16 community workshops, 17 radio shows, 3 community luncheons and private workshops with orgs and groups. We met 482 survivors (attempted and lost loved ones) locally through the tour and our Facebook account has generated over 500 new friends (mainly survivors) as a result of the outreach and promotions of awareness we’ve done since the last tour.


    And so we took what we learnt from meeting and talking with survivors to plan the contents and structure of the next tour in January by making it about healing and wellness. The theme of this tour is “Healing and Wellness; Let's Heal”. Many of the survivors we met during the September-October tour are still hurting, struggling and crying out for help in facing the challenges of living. Many have never reported their attempts nor struggles dealing with their losses. Many sought help and wasn’t able to get it. Their cries resonated with us and we wanted to make sure our follow up efforts would be that of healing and comfort for them.

  • A New Year and another Relapse; Lets Talk Prevention and Intervention!

    in Family

    Drug and alcohol rehab statistics show that the percentage of young and old who will relapse after a period of recovery ranges from 50% to 90%. This is a frightening statistic and it is often used as justification for those who wish to carry on with their addiction. What these figures hide is that there are things that the individual can do to greatly increase their chances of sustained sobriety. Those people who are serious about aftercare greatly increase their chances of success. It is most often those who are not adequately supported in recovery that end up returning to their addiction. Many people claim that relapse is a normal part of recovery, but this is just not true. There is absolutely no advantage in continuously relapsing and each time the individual returns to alcohol and drugs they are taking a risk. Those individuals who are in rehab need to adequately prepare for their transition back home. This is a family disease and hopefully the family is involved and has sought recovery themselves and you have a supportive system to go home to. Although, you still need the willingness to do whatever it takes to stay sober, which is a nesessity and very vital to ones recovery. If people are not fully motivated they will struggle to make it through the early months of recovery. It is vital that newly sober people take their aftercare seriously. This could be a choice between life or death. By joining a 12 step group or using some other type of support they will be greatly increasing their chances of success. Join me and special guest speaker Rickie Lynn Harris on this vital topic Friday nite Jan 2nd at 9pm CT as we discuss prevention/intervention, hope and a healthier way of living!! at www.blogtalkradio.com/ritahodges

    Suicide Risk and Prevention for LGBTQ youths

    in Environment

    Most lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth are happy and thrive during their adolescent years. Going to a school that creates a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and having caring and accepting parents are especially important. This helps all youth achieve good grades and maintain good mental and physical health. However, some LGBTQ youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience difficulties in their lives and school environments, such as violence. Negative attitudes toward lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people put these youth at increased risk for experiences with violence, compared with other students
