September is Suicide Prevention  Month.  With suicide being  the second leading cause of death for  young people aged 10-24 years old, this is a  time to raise awareness of this stigmatized,  sensitive and often taboo, topic. The goal of this month is  to shift public perception, spread hope and share vital information to people affected by suicide.


Please join guest speaker Dr. Rola Tomori of Regina’s Safe Alliance at Switzer Library on Saturday, September 23rd at 1pm  for  Teen Talk: Suicide Awareness and Prevention. 

Dr.Rola will teach teens, young adults and their families common myths about suicide, what to do if a loved one talks to you about suicide, and recovery from suicidal thoughts and attempts. 


There will be a Q&A session immediately  following  this important discussion.


This program is intended for teenagers and young adults (16-21). Families are welcome and encouraged to attend and support. No Registration Required
