Suicide Awareness: What to do when you are concerned about someone you know

Where Campus Center, 105

Duration 2 hours

Students:

  • Have you ever known someone you thought was at risk for suicide but did not know what to do?
  • Does it cause you anxiety to think about helping someone because you do not know what to say?
  • Would you like to feel more comfortable in knowing warning signs and how to get people help?

Then join us for a suicide awareness program that will cover all the above.

* Each year in the U.S., approximately two million adolescents attempt suicide. * Every year, more than 4000 young people, ages 15-24, take their own lives. The rate of suicide among this age group has almost tripled in the last 50 years. * Suicide is the third leading cause of death in adolescents and the second leading cause of death among college-age young people. * More than 300 million young people are at risk for suicide, yet only 36% receive treatment. You can become someone who pays attention to signs, reaches out and connects people to services.
