Suicide Awareness & Prevention Month

Stomp the Stigma Shoe Display

Maumee Valley Guidance Center participated in Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month throughout September. Pictured above, Maumee Valley Guidance Center helped to bring the “Stomp the Stigma” shoe display to the area, on behalf of the Four County Suicide Prevention Coalition. The display contained 188 shoes to represent the 188 suicide deaths of residents of the Four County Area from 2008 – 2017. Pictured below, Maumee Valley Guidance Center employees participated in the 7th annual One Step at a Time 5k in Defiance. The 5k brings awareness to the issue of suicide and raises funds for suicide awareness and prevention in Defiance County.
