A community gathering for parents concerning recent tragic events will be held at UNM-LA, starting at 5:30 p.m. today.

The event, coordinated by parent Lynne Higdon was a response from Higdon after receiving many requests for information, prior to local families headed out on winter break.

“I am concerned about the well being of our community,” said Higdon. “My daughter worked with Agora at UNM as a crisis line volunteer and was sure they could be a support to Los Alamos. She saw the positive impact the help line has had on people that call in to talk.”

The Agora Crisis Center is one of many state agencies that have offered assistance during the last two weeks to offer continuous resources for the community as well as the New Mexico Suicide Intervention Program and the New Mexico Suicide Prevention Coalition.

The event Thursday night is a chance for Agora professionals to offer parents tips on how to discuss the topics and signs to look for in those that may still be overwhelmed with emotion.

“Agora provides free, compassionate, confidential help to anyone in need of emotional support,” said Molly McCoy Brack, Director of Agora.
