Suicide Prevention Event held in Riverside Park

LA CROSSE (WKBT)–The La Crosse Area Suicide Prevention Initiative held its annual event Wednesday to mark Suicide Awareness Month.

The event featured music and a performance by the La Crosse Dance Centre.

The group set up memorial displays and gave out information about local resources.

A member of the Initiative hopes events like this let people know they’re not alone.

“Hopefully if anybody is having a hard time or thoughts of suicide, they will see with these events that they’re not alone,” said member Julie Dietz. “There are other people [who] have experienced those thoughts and feelings too.”

If you or anyone you know has suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988.
