Reminder! Let’s Talk About It: Understanding Suicide Workshop Tues., Nov. 3

Of the 1,100 college students who died by suicide last year, only 15-20% ever sought professional help. However, we know 67% of college students tell a friend they are feeling suicidal before telling anyone else.

How can you help get someone to professional help? Speak up. Reach out. Get Help. AND…be part of our discussion!

Understanding Suicide
Tuesday, November 3, 2015
12:30pm in the PUB, room 9208 (Quiet Dining Room)

We have invited a panel to campus to talk about one of the most difficult subjects in our culture: suicide. Join us to learn more about the signs and symptoms of suicidality from a personal perspective. Counselors from SCC Counseling Services will be available during and after the panel. All are welcome.

Join Counseling Services and Brooke Zimmers from Communication Studies to welcome guest speakers Laura Nelson and Laura Philip to our campus. Laura and Laura will increase understanding of suicide by presenting their personal stories and experiences, and sharing what recovery has looked like for them. They will discuss warning signs, ways to get someone help, and what has been helpful for them. We are pleased to welcome these speakers, who have both volunteered with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention.

SCC Counselors Gwyn Hoffman-Robinson and Sheryl Copeland will be available to provide information and resources after the presentation.
