Rock Island – Christian Care, a local nonprofit charity that provides shelter and an array of services for homeless men, and women and children who have experienced domestic violence, now offers a support group called Understanding Suicide: ASAP (Awareness, Support, Action, Prevention). The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd at 4:00 p.m. at the Rock Island Public Library, 401 19 th Street in Rock Island. The Understanding Suicide group will meet every other Wednesday from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
“I went through a hardship ten years ago, and I attempted suicide,” said Holly Bailey, one of the group’s founders. “I wish people would feel more comfortable talking about mental illness—there’s still a stigma that’s attached to it, leaving people feeling helpless and all alone.”
