About This Event

According to the Indiana State Department of Health, nearly 1 in 3 Indiana high school students (29.3%) report feeling sad or hopeless almost every day for at least 2 weeks. As a community we must come together to support our youth. Armed with greater understanding, we are equipped to discuss what we can do to address youth suicide prevention. 

Join us for this informative presentation to learn more about: 

  • how youth suicide in Indiana compares nationally; 
  • why some youth are at greater risks of suicide; and 
  • recognizing risk factors that can contribute to suicide.
