First day of spring and a great turnout at our weekly meeting.  Our program was presented by Lora Whalen and Karen Petit from the Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN) of Idaho www.spanidaho.org.  Suicide is a tough topic, especially when it hits close to home.  We reviewed statistics, learned some warning signs, and received information on resources.  Our club will be making a donation to SPAN in memory of Rob Newman.
 
Panhandle Health Department's Lora Whalen talks about SPAN.
 
Karen Petit shares how her personal experience led to the formation of a Suicide survivors Support group here in Coeur d'Alene
