A suicide death is devastating to survivors. There always remains the question “Why?”, and frequently those left behind are slow to recover, their lives changed forever. Suicide, a public health issue, is generally preventable. Research has given us great understanding about risk and protective factors, as well as warning signs and what to do when we are concerned about someone’s safety.
This workshop will focus on youth suicide in children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 24. The greater our understanding, the more effective we become in prevention. And if a suicide does occur, responding in a proper way will minimize the possibility of another death or deaths. The session is designed to enhance awareness among educators and others who have a presence in the lives of these children and young adults.
