What people are saying

This booklet that you’ve produced is absolutely stunning. It’s wondrous. We’ve lost two kids to suicide or accidental overdose in the last three years, and some are holding on by a thread now, as are their parents.

TEMPLE BETH SHALOM
Santa Fe, NM

I was particularly impressed by the presentations made by Drs. Kranzler and Harkavy-Friedman. Their practical advice, built upon many years of experience, should resonate with your audience.
