Thursdays with NAMI: Tackling isolation and stress with Letitia Hill, LCMHCS during Suicide Prevention Month

7 p.m. September 1, 2022

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10 to 18 in North Carolina, and the third leading cause of death for those ages 19 to 34, according to the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

Social isolation – which often goes hand in hand with mental illness – is a risk factor for suicide. What steps can we take to increase social support for peers? The answer could lie in developing skills to navigate social situations – and manage the stress that accompanies the effort.

Letitia Hill will discuss how to increase emotional intelligence and cope with work and family stress. She is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Clinical Supervisor, and Emotional Intelligence expert in North Carolina. Letitia is the owner of Positive Redirection, PLLC, which offers counseling for couples, individual adults, and children. Her areas of focus include bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Letitia graduated from NC Central University with a bachelor’s in Psychology and a master’s in Community Agency Mental Health Counseling. Her passion for mental wellness fuels her desire to bridge the gap between the mental health, healthcare, and corporate sectors. Letitia is a past president of the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of NC. In 2016, she was named a 40 Under 40 Award recipient by NCCU. This event is free and open to the public.
