Description

Rockville, September, 2017—Progressions Salon and Spa will host their Month-Long Suicide Prevention Awareness Campaign, a fundraising benefit during September at their location, 12211 NEBEL STREET, Rockville, Maryland. Their efforts will raise money for You Matter (UMTTR), a nonprofit suicide intervention program. To honor National Suicide Awareness Month, which is September, Progressions Salon and Spa is raffling off a $2,000 gift card to Progressions as well as a pair of autographed Sugar Ray Leonard boxing gloves. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. One hundred percent of the money raised by Progressions benefits UMTTR programs in Montgomery County.

Every year for the their anniversary celebration, Progressions chooses a non-profit or community organization to donate proceeds. This year, for their 33rd anniversary, Progressions is partnering with UMTTR to bring awareness to this oftentimes stigmatized, overlooked topic.

“My sophomore varsity basketball player son was a to friend to everyone...He meant something to the community.”, said Sue Rosenstock, Executive Director of UMTTR, in a phone interview. After a sports injury, Sue’s son became severely depressed and eventually took his own life. “(His friends) said, ‘If this can happen to Evan, this can happen to anyone. They wanted to form an organization to promote health and strength.”

In addition to the month long raffle, Progressions Salon and Spa will spotlight “the five signs of suffering” through their social media, in their salon and through eNewsletters. Progressions is proud to assist UMTTR’s efforts to bring a peer-led, evidence-based suicide intervention model called Sources of Strength to 70,000 individuals by 2020, which covers “the five signs of suffering”.

“We’re trying to communicate, educate and motivate people to understand mental health,” Sue says. “It’s kids helping kids. Evidence has proven that this program reduced suicide, drug abuse and bullying”.
