This year at Lakes Jam there will be a free service available at all events where Emergency Mental Health Technicians (EMHTs) will be available at anytime for anyone who is in need of assistance related to mental health. The service will be available from noon on Thursday, June 23 – 7 am Sunday the 26th and is provided by an organization called Smiles for Jake.
From their website, Smiles for Jake describes themselves as, “…a suicide prevention movement that spreads positivity through life-affirming actions, listening ears, and the message that everyone should have hope. Born in and spreading from a community that experienced the suicide of a beloved son, our short-term goal is to reduce the suicide rate and our long-term vision is to stomp out suicide worldwide.”
Nor-Son hosted an employee educational event on May 17 to learn more and raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental health in the workplace. Board members from Smiles for Jake along with Psychiatrist Lauren Phillips of CRMC came to our office and gave us a wonderful presentation. Following this, we hosted an internal fundraiser and employee lunch for Smiles for Jake where our employees’ generously donated $860 for their cause.
