America is facing a suicide crisis. With an increase of 33 percent between 1999 and 2017, suicide rates are at their highest point in 50 years. It is now the second-leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 35. How do we change this grim reality? It begins with knowing how to notice those who are vulnerable to hurting themselves. Join us in Bldg. B for this special event providing practical tools for knowing the signs of someone who is at risk for taking their own life. Together, we can help change the statistics and bring hope to those who are suffering.
The event will feature two identical one-hour sessions at 9:15am and 10:45am (with limited seating) along with resources provided by local partnering mental health organizations.
