About This Event

Hoosier youth are significantly more likely to consider or attempt suicide than their peers nationally and Indiana faces significant disparities in youth suicide among vulnerable groups. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24 and the 4th leading cause of death for youth ages 5-14.

Join us as we look at what schools and communities are doing to address this difficult issue and gain understanding on prevention and intervention as a continuum of practice. Along with some practitioners, we will be joined by Jeff Wittman from the Indiana Department of Education who serves as the School Social Work & Foster Youth Specialist and Laurie Gerdt from Community Health Network serving as Program Manager for the Zero Suicides for Indiana Youth.

Participants will hear about reframing for prevention as a means to address youth risk behaviors and also identify exemplars of implementation in school-based and community-based settings.

About This Event

Human trafficking is the fastest growing and tied as the second-largest criminal industry worldwide.

By reframing and humanizing an issue that is often sensationalized and stigmatized, we can begin to understand how human trafficking impacts our youth and families. This interactive presentation will help create a clearer vision of what human trafficking may look like in our Indiana communities.  

During this workshop you will: 

  • understand the definitions of human trafficking under federal and state law; 
  • recognize risk factors that make youth vulnerable to being exploited, as well as what makes them less likely to identify as a victim and less likely to leave a trafficking situation; 
  • be able to identify victims and how to report a suspected case; and 
  • learn what intervention and victim services are available locally, regionally and statewide. 

Speakers
