Register Now! Suicide Awareness Training

Why should YOU attend? Nevada has the 4th highest rate of suicide in the US (nearly double the national rate). Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for Nevada students ages 15-24. Students reach out for help through writing assignments, comments to instructors and fellow students, and actions (not attending class or shifts in behavior). Each suicide leaves at least six to eight bereaved family and friends. Discussing suicide does NOT cause someone to die by suicide.
