Can the stories be triggering for some readers? Can the mental health curriculum be triggering for attendees?

Although the intention of the stories is to provide hope to those silently struggling, the individuals that share their stories mention personal experiences of suicide attempts, self-harm, loss of a loved one to suicide, coping both negatively and positively, etc. Some of these topics may be triggering for some readers who are currently struggling or have struggled with similar experiences. If you are concerned about being triggered by a story, we encourage you to make an informed decision with your treatment provider. TW include: self-harm, suicide, domestic violence, sexual assault Lost Got Found's curriculum address topics including, but not limited to, mental health, mental illness, coping skills, and suicide prevention. We have taken great care to minimize possible triggers and promote positive and hopeful messaging. However, if you are concerned about being triggered by our program, we encourage you to make an informed decision with your treatment provider about program participation. All activities and discussions are voluntary participation. No individual will ever be forced to participate in our curriculum.
