People all over town are talking about it.  What resembled a stream of twinkling lights in the sky, were actually illuminated balloons with messages of hope and healing written on them.  Supporters of North Range Behavioral Health’s Suicide Education and Support Services program gathered in Bittersweet Park from 5 pm to 9 pm for the Glimmer of Hope.  Participants of the Glimmer of Hope completed a 3k walk/run as well as participated in a ceremony inspired by the concept that “hope shines brightest in the darkest moments”.  The illuminated balloons you saw were representative of the idea that there is hope in this world and life is worth living.  Each light you carried a message with it that brought light to the difficult subject of suicide.  If you would like more information about participating in the Glimmer of Hope next year please contact krismichelle.nohavec@northrange.org or call 313-1089.  If you are bereaved by suicide, support groups are available by contacting patty.lloyd@northrange.org or calling 313-1095.  If you are in crisis please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or visit your nearest emergency room.  Help is available for those suffering from depression at North Range Behavioral Health 347-2120.
