Tools for Teen Suicide Prevention for Parents and Peers

March 28 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm MDT


EXPERTS: Dr. Christine Yu Moutier, John Macphee, Dr. Dan Reidenberg, Dr. Lindsay Henderson

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youths aged 10–24, with a staggering 52.2% increase in suicide rates from 2000 to 2021. Support from family and peers is critical. Research shows that 76% of first-year college students turn to friends and 64% to family for emotional support.

Join us for a roundtable discussion as well as a live Q&A that provides practical advice on how to:

  1. See the signs that someone you know and love is at risk.
  2. Support them through meaningful communication, creating a safe space for discussion, and facilitating access to professional help.
  3. Understand when and how to report suicide risk — from reporting procedures at educational institutions to available community resources and professional services.
