Workshop on Youth Suicide Prevention: A Community Approach

This interactive 2-day workshop will provide opportunities for participants to gain the latest research-based information; engage in experiential exercises; assess and plan a comprehensive, public health approach for suicide prevention; and share ideas and information in large and small group discussions. A follow-up opportunity two months after the workshop will re-connect participants on a group conference call to share community updates and progress of their suicide prevention efforts, discuss any challenges they have encountered in planning and implementation, and be informed of current state and national youth suicide prevention initiatives. View flyer (pdf).

  • Gain knowledge and skill in planning a community approach to youth suicide prevention.
