Community Event: The Role of Forgiveness in Suicide Prevention
Updated: Mar 13
Prairie du Sac, WI - The Farmer Angel Network and Sauk Prairie Healthcare Foundation are partnering to offer a community event featuring Tim Markle, author and founder of the Forgiveness Factor, discussing The Role of Forgiveness in Suicide Prevention.
Sauk County and specifically the Sauk Prairie area have seen far too many deaths by suicide in the last few years. Mental health has also been identified as one of the top five priorities in the 2022-24 Community Health Needs Assessment conducted by Sauk Prairie Healthcare for our local communities. These organizations are partnering on this event to help build our community, offer fellowship and education on the role of forgiveness in suicide prevention. Both organizations prioritize breaking the stigma around mental illness and are working to prevent suicide.
Join us Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Sauk Prairie Healthcare, 260 26th St., Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. Register for this free event at farmerangelnetwork.com/events.
Life is hard. We wish we were able to roll with the punches. We wish we could just hang-in there or just let it go. But it's hard. Forgiveness, when we learn what it is and what it isn't, can help us deal with our past and move into our future. It can help protect our mental health, change how we interact with the world, change how we deal with pain and resentments. Let's learn the basics of forgiveness and how to begin applying forgiveness principles.
Mr. Markle combines research with lived experience to bring a unique perspective on forgiving in an unforgiving world. He lives in Stoughton, Wisconsin, and has been featured locally on Life 102.5 FM radio, and throughout the state and nation at conference, churches, wellness events and community events.
