Sharing Kindness supports suicide prevention in schools in every town on Cape Cod and on the islands. We have advocated for a suicide prevention policy for each district. With funds earned by the C&I Suicide Awareness Walks, our organization has paid for educator training through AFSP, called Signs Matter: Early Detection. Sharing Kindness has partnered with the Samaritans, Calmer Choice, and various school districts to offer community screenings of Angst with a panel of local clinicians to support those attending. We have partnered with the Cape and Islands Suicide Prevention Coalition to host QPR intervention trainings in the Outer Cape.
For grief support, Sharing Kindness offers an ongoing series of Yoga for Grief at multiple Cape locations. Our group has piloted a grief support program for youth, and another for grandparents raising grandchildren. Our long-term goal is to offer expanded grief support for adults and children on Cape Cod and the Islands.
When you donate to Sharing Kindness, you support educators, children who lost a parent to suicide, young adults who struggle, and family members and friends grieving the death of someone close to them to death by suicide. Your donation continues the conversation, breaks through isolation, and helps to smash the stigma of suicide. We thank you for your support and interest in Sharing Kindness.
