A Special Community Program on Teen Suicide

Wednesday, October 1 – 7 p.m. Christian Health Care Center Auditorium 700 Mountain Ave., Wyckoff Teen suicide Centered Care

One in eight teenagers experiences some degree of depression. On December 1, 2010, 16-year-old TJ Sefcik — son, brother, friend, varsity athlete, and honor student — died by suicide. How could a boy with so much love and potential make this choice? TJ’s parents, Wendy and Steve, and his 16-year-old brother Matt will share their story to raise awareness on mental illness among youth, how it impacts the entire family, and how they turned their tragedy into a message of empowerment, hope, and education. Seating is limited, and light refreshments will be served. Registration is required by calling (201) 848-4463 or emailing khockstein@chccnj.org.
