NAMI Presents – Preventing Youth Suicide –
Apr 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The National Alliance on Mental Illness presents a workshop for all community members.
Cindy Gonzalez, MSW, of Seattle’s Youth Suicide Prevention Program, will present Networks for Life, a training to build strong community prevention. She has worked with at-risk youth, the LGBTQ community, immigrant communities and people experiencing domestic violence and is a bilingual trainer.
Each week in Washington State, an average of two young people die by suicide and another 17 suicide attempts result in hospitalization. While these facts are disturbing, there is hope. By educating ourselves and others, we can make a difference.
This workshop is free and open to the public.
No registration required.
This free presentation takes place on Thursday, April 21, 2016 from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Verdant Community Wellness Center, 4710 196th Street SW in Lynnwood, WA.
