it is highly recommended that those attending this event in-person be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We will require that all in attendance wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. You will also be required to complete a brief screening.             

This conference is brought to you with the intention of creating awareness to the prevalence of suicide as well as methods of prevention and the detection of suicide risk factors. How can we work together through a multidisciplinary approach to tackle this epidemic?


Hope is the belief that circumstances will get better. It's not a wish for things to get better it's the actual belief, the knowledge that things will get better, no matter how big or small.

Study shows - Racial discrimination linked to suicidal thoughts in African American men

The rate of U.S. adolescents and young adults dying of suicide has reached its highest level in nearly two decades, according a report published in JAMA.
