Lines for Life, Oregon Health Authority, and other dedicated community partners invite you to join us at the
Oregon Suicide Prevention Conference (OSPC). Attendees will encounter plentiful opportunities to learn, connect, and heal and will leave with relevant networks, skills, and training, along with to-do lists for improving suicide prevention and mental health promotion efforts in their communities. OSPC 2022 – Reconnecting to Hope: Growing Responsive Communities – focuses on rebuilding and growing connections between individuals, providers, local and state resources, advocates, and prevention leaders. These connections strengthen community support networks and create systems that can respond with compassion and care to address individuals' unique needs, lifting Oregonians to reconnect to hope when they are struggling. OSPC 2022 will be held Tuesday, October 11th through Thursday, October 13th, 2022, at Ashland Hills Hotel Conference Center in Ashland, Oregon. Pre-conference trainings will be
on Monday, October 10th. This conference is an in-person event, so the guidance of local and federal health authorities concerning COVID-19 risk and precautions will be followed.

Gathering Hope is a collective experience for bereaved mothers, held each October to both
remember our children and honor our unique motherhood. As fellow survivors, they invite you to
join them for powerful speakers, uplifting worship, and a sacred, intimate atmosphere where you are
regarded as a truly honored guest. Inspired by Isaiah 61, we are excited to share this year’s theme,
BEAUTY FOR ASHES. "He has sent me to...bind up the brokenhearted...to comfort all who mourn...to give
them a crown of beauty in place of ashes..."Isaiah 61:1-3. Gathering Hope has hosted an annual
Gathering for miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss survivors since 2015.
This year, they are thrilled to announce that we have THREE different ways where you can
connect with the people who understand you most…other moms.
1. Their first ever FULL DAY CONFERENCE! You will experience worship, be encouraged
by guest speakers, intentionally connect with other women, attend breakout sessions,
meet with specially selected vendors and MORE.
2. Attend Gathering 2022 Virtually. You’ll be able to simultaneously view the worship
session, our speakers *and* gather in breakouts rooms with other attendees, just like
we do at our in-person Gathering.
3. Gather with other loss moms in your area. By streaming the Gathering 2022 worship & speaker
sessions and using the Leadership Kit as your guide, you’ll be empowered to host a Gathering!
How will YOU join them for Gathering 2022?
You matter, Mama. Your baby matters. Your story matters.
