    Place: Langeland Family Funeral Homes - Portage Chapel - 411 East Centre Avenue, Portage, MI 49002

    This presentation is open to the community including those who have experienced the loss of a loved by suicide and those who support (mental health professionals, clergy, school teachers and staff, or friends and family) those who are dealing with this tragic loss.

    Our special guest speaker is Barb Smith from Saginaw, Michigan. She is the founder and facilitator of the Saginaw Survivors of Suicide. This non-profit support group has been ongoing for the past 25 years. Barb works with families and friends left behind after a death by suicide as a private consultant to grief and suicide. Her most recent project is authoring a short story in i'MPOSSIBLE project book with Josh Rivedal. Titled "Pain With a Purpose".

    Langelands is aware of the incredible pain which accompanies loss through suicide, and it is our desire to share a path of hope and healing.
