Webconference: Understanding and Preventing Suicide

Please join the Missouri Institute of Mental Health on Thursday, August
7 at 1:30 PM CDT (2:30 Eastern; 11:30 AM Pacific) for a free presentation with Elizabeth Makulec titled "Understanding and Preventing Suicide". This program may be viewed at .

This presentation will include a special 28 minute video presentation, "Understanding and Preventing Suicide", produced by The Glendon Association's Violence and Suicide Prevention Alliance. This powerful new film highlights the lives of three individuals, Kevin, Susan and Trish, who made serious suicide attempts and lived.

The video presentation will be followed by additional suicide prevention information and resources presented by Elizabeth Makulec, a certified facilitator of QPR and a LivingWorks certified trainer for both the ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Training) and safeTALK (Suicide Alertness for Everyone) community education programs. Ms. Makulec serves on the Missouri Governor's Suicide Prevention Advisory Committee and is Project Coordinator for the Gateway Youth Suicide Prevention Resources Partnership, a multi-agency suicide prevention and education collaboration.
CEUs will be available for those interested. As of July 1, CEUs are only $10 per person.

If this will be your first time joining one of these presentations, you are encouraged to view a test video at your convenience. This may be seen at .

Questions should be directed, not to SPRC, but to the web conference
