Healing Art –  Lived Experience

These 3 hour workshops are for anyone who has lived with the experience of suicidal thoughts or behaviors.  YHOA is a safe place where others who can relate to thoughts of suicide come without shame or fear of judgment to create and express without having to use your words. A place where you will be met with the peer support of “me too”.
(A minimum of 4 participants is required to hold workshop)
