The Suicide Prevention Coalition in Clackamas County welcomes Dr. Crystallee Crain who will lead us in an interactive presentation over the next two meetings of the Coalition.   Dr. Crain will facilitate discussions around labeling, social perceptions about worth, playing out scripts of stereotypes and the silent bystander, and ways treatments and supports can perpetuate isolation.  She will also frame and discuss embodied trauma – COVID and its impact on communities of color and fear of the healthcare system.   She will lead us in an interactive case-study and help us to identify opportunities for change – change that we can commit to action.
