On Thursday, September 24th at 7pm, join us for a virtual town hall on youth suicide prevention. This topic is of the utmost importance always but especially in light of COVID-19, and September is National Suicide Prevention Month.

Suicide prevention experts Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas and Riverside Trauma Center’s Dr. Larry Berkowitz, who specializes in youth and families, will present essential information and practical tips.

Author, prevention advocate, and suicide attempt survivor Craig Miller will share his personal story, as will Ysabel Garcia, a mental health advocate and social justice educator who will discuss her experience as a Latina youth immigrant with suicidal intensity.
