Educational Events

Important New Registration Information:

Four Winds Saratoga is committed to providing quality mental health education programs that are free of charge and open to the community. In the past our programs have not required registration. However, we have experienced a change in the parking situation at our facility and are now asking that you let us know if you plan to attend.

Programs are still free, and we do not want to turn people away from pursing education on the day of the event. However, we would like to know approximately how many people that we need to seat and how many cars we will need to park, prior to the program.

Thus, please give us a call (518-581-5015, ext. 3115) to let us know if you plan to attend an event and we will have your parking space, coffee, and handouts waiting for you upon arrival!

Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you soon!

Saturday, November 22, 2014

“National Survivors of Suicide Day”
Co-sponsored with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,
Capital Region Chapter

Each year in November, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) sponsors National Survivors of Suicide Day, which provides an opportunity for those who have lost someone to suicide (survivors) to come together for support, healing, information and empowerment. By linking with local survivor conferences around the country through a live broadcast, National Survivors of Suicide Day helps survivors express and understand the powerful emotions that they experience, and connect with others who have survived the tragedy of losing someone to suicide.

Four Winds Saratoga and the Capital District Chapter of AFSP have joined together to offer an event for local survivors and clinicians. Please pass the following date and time along to anyone who you think may benefit from attending this informative event.

Please register for this free event by calling 518-581-5015, ext. 3115 or click here to register online.
