Community Invited to Candlelight Vigil

HopeNet of Carpinteria will hold a candlelight vigil on Friday Sept. 10, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in honor and memory of those who have died by suicide, suicide survivors and those who have been affected by it. Held at the Seal Fountain on Linden Avenue, there will be music, speakers, candles, refreshments, resources and therapists on hand and available to help. Anyone who attends will have a chance to share a name or thoughts about loved ones. The annual event aims to to help destigmatize suicide and promote mental wellness in our community. Everyone is welcome.
