Handshake, Hug or Hi
Joel Friders, Yorkville Alderman, 3rd Ward
Last year over 41,000 people were lost to suicide. Yorkville has adopted a proclamation for September to be National Suicide Awareness month along with 24 Illinois municipalities and the state of Illinois. This outreach project is all about recognizing that suicide is a problem and sometimes it's best to reach out to someone just by starting a conversation, a handshake, a hug or a hi.
