Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth and young adults in New Hampshire. We can all learn to prevent suicide by understanding the warning signs and what to do if someone is at risk. This presentation will include a national video created by college students about suicide prevention and a presentation by a PSU alumna who lost her brother to suicide. The program will provide participants with information on how to recognize someone at risk, where and how to get help, and what resources exist for those who have been affected by suicide. Many of these resources exist right on the PSU campus. Find more information here.
