In Tribute to Allie Barreiro, We Honor the Beauty + Courage Within Us All
Allie Barreiro was a beautiful, fierce soul with a huge, generous heart. She has left us much too soon. Allie touched the hearts of many people. All are invited to join in a community yoga class that will pay tribute to Allie and honor the light and joy she brought to the community. We will celebrate Allie as we will also celebrate the unique beauty, courage and light that is within each of us.
Our hearts are heavy knowing that Allie took her own life. It is a topic difficult to discuss that we cannot ignore. “Suicide is a serious public health problem that affects people of all ages. It is the 10th leading cause of death for Americans and has been among the top 12 leading causes of death since 1975 in the United States. Many people are uncomfortable with the topic of suicide. As a result, people rarely communicate openly about suicide. Thus, an important public health problem is left hidden in secrecy, which can hinder effective prevention efforts.” (CDC.gov)
We will also take this time to host experts and bring forward resources available for mental health, crisis management and suicide prevention.
