Our October Men's Program is scheduled for next Thursday evening, October 12 from 7 to 9pm.
Introducing our October Men’s Program Guest Speaker; Derek Wilson
On the 8th January 1998 two of Derek’s children, Ben aged 7 and Molly aged 4, drowned at Gunnamatta while on a family day trip to the beach. Derek spoke at the men’s program in 2012 and has agreed to come back this month to talk about how ‘his grief has changed over time’.
I have known Derek as a friend for many years. We have experienced both the highs and lows of life together. Derek’s talk will touch on a range of other areas including,
• 20 years on, how grief impacted on both himself and his family
• The idea of grief having a “use by” date
• Finding meaning and maintaining hope
I am sure that Derek’s story will be of interest to many of you and I look forward to seeing you all next Thursday evening. If you are interested in attending the October Men’s program, please call Support After Suicide on 9421 7640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
