Last year we had items like this...
You might ask me, Kelly why do you do this fundraiser every year? or why do you earn money for the Task Force? I do this fundraiser in memory of my dad Dick Sayre. He committed suicide on December 18th, 1993. I want people to know that my dad was an amazing man. He was the most selfless man I have ever known, and he was in a pain I hope I never know. Most people don't understand depression unless they have it too. It's not talked about and suicide is even more taboo. Here at Break the Silence we want to take away the shame, the stigma, the lies, and falsehoods. We want you to know you can ask, you can talk, you can find support here. The Tulare County Suicide Prevention Task Force does this too. Their LOSS Team is there on-site with the family at the same time as the police and emergency services. They hold their hand answer the questions they can and cry with them if that's what they need. They are there for them after too. They also do educational and support preventive efforts as well. I would have benefited from an organization like this, yet it was not provided 29 years ago. I want to make sure it stays available for anyone going forward. Hopefully, the need for the LOSS team will diminish, until then I am grateful for these people who will be there for those that are in the dark, with a little light.

Donovan invented the Solving Our Stress (SOS) system to know exactly what to do for every high school student that walked into his counseling office. Sometimes it was like a revolving door and lives are at stake so the system needed to be highly efficient and effective. The SOS system is like having x-ray vision with the invisible inner world of teens compared to the confusion without it and you'll be able to pick the ability to see what is going on in yourself and others through his presentation. Donovan spent 20 years as a school counselor and currently serves families as the Teen Takeoff Coach, helping families launch their kids out of the nest and into life.
