Event description

Description

This event is in partnership with the Suicide Awareness Council of Wellington Dufferin, Gambling Research Exchange Ontario and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.

Written by Catherine Frid Directed by Valerie Senyk

AfterWhys is a 40 minute stage play about the importance of hope and resilience for seniors who face mental health challenges, including suicide. This live performance also depicts, with humour and compassion, how we can better support those around us who may need help. ‘Seniors & Suicide: Risk, Myths and Conversation’, a facilitated discussion will take place after the performance.

Canadians age 60 and over are one of the most at-risk groups for suicide. AfterWhys opens the conversation about this sometimes taboo subject, and opens our minds to how we can each help family and friends who may be struggling and even at risk of suicide.

This play and conversation will be supported by ASIST trained individuals in the room for audience members who may be upset by its content.

The play was created for the community through story sharing and input from those who have been impacted by suicide.
