Suicide prevention program

Event Details

Start Date:  September 27, 2012

The Saint Francis University Counseling Center is sponsoring a suicide prevention program on Thursday, September 27, at 7 p.m. on the Loretto campus in DiSepio 213. The program will be presented by Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski, and will focus on recognizing the warning signs of suicide and strategies for prevention. The event is free and open to the public.

In the United States, more people die by suicide (50%) each year than homicide. Experts believe that most suicidal individuals do not want to die. They just want to end the pain they are experiencing. When suicidal intent or risk is detected early, lives can be saved. Together we can reduce the number of lives shaken by a needless and tragic death. For more information, contact 814-472-3211.
