Join us as we celebrate South Dakota’s impactful suicide prevention work. Through this conference you will be able to learn more about at risk populations in South Dakota and be provided with additional tools and resources for suicide prevention and stigma reduction related to mental health.

Featuring speakers in the areas of veterans, youth, tribal communities, compassion fatigue, and the general population as well as those with lived experience of suicide loss or survival. We started the conversation last year, let's keep it going as we work to end suicide in South Dakota.
