Our Pain, Suffering and Anguish:

If Only This session will focus on preventative steps to aid in efforts to increase awareness of an individual’s perception of those we may contact without any knowledge of their inner pain, sufferings, anguish, or other form of distress. “If only” is a phrase we hear too often in times of tragedy. If only we had known what was going on. If only we would’ve had that conversation. If only they knew they weren’t alone. If only I had recognized the signs. If only we had more access to treatment. If only. Unfortunately, the conversation tends to be short and after tragedy has already struck – suicides, homelessness, unemployment, and incarceration. This session opens eyes and helps to identify windows of opportunity to encourage involvement into what some may deem as private matters. We can all make a difference if only we’re willing to get involved. Where there is doubt, questions, and/or concern we should get involved. “If Only…”
