Event description

Description

The National Institute on Mental Health states that suicide is a major public health concern. Over 40,000 people die by suicide each year in the United States; it is the 10th leading cause of death overall. Suicide is complicated and tragic, but it is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can help save lives.

This FREE 2-hour workshop will provide you with information that can help you recognize the risk factors and warning signs of suicide.

Will you #BeThe1To to get involved and help spread the word that we can all do our part to prevent suicide?
