Suicide is a very real public health problem that continues to impact individuals from a variety of backgrounds and of all ages. By knowing what to watch for and knowing what resources are available to help, suicides can be prevented. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for ages 15 – 24 and one out of six high school students nationwide have seriously considered suicide in the last year.
The Kim Foundation will start the conversation about suicide prevention and encourage attendees to arm themselves with information.
The topics to be covered will include: warning signs to watch for in individuals, how to have the conversation with someone who is suicidal, and sharing local/national resources that can connect someone to help. We hope you will join us for this important and informative presentation.
