State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) delivered opening remarks today at the National Loss Conference. The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, in partnership with the National Loss Team Committee, hosted the conference on September 10th and 11th.

The event was an opportunity for survivors and psychologists from all across the country to come together to focus on the concept of “postvention.” This year’s mantra was “In the Journey of Loss, We Can Find Meaning Again.” The September 10th date held special meaning for the conference participants. House Bill 149, sponsored by Representative Anielski, designates September 10th as “Ohio Suicide Prevention Day.” This is the first year that this legislation has been in effect and corresponds with the National and Worldwide Prevention Days.

“During my time in the legislator, I have strived to help raise awareness about this “silent epidemic” that has swept across our state, claiming many lives and leaving a trail of grief in its wake.” Rep Anielski said. “As an Ohioan, elected official, and my most important role, as a mother, I feel we need to focus on prevention and support individuals struggling emotionally. We need to protect our most precious gifts, our children.”
