Networks for Life (ADULTS): Your Role in Suicide Prevention

  • Spark Center 1214 W Summit Pkwy Spokane, WA, 99201 United States (map)

Join us on World Suicide Prevention Day to create a safe space to discuss stress, depression, coping skills, warning signs for suicide, how to intervene when you are concerned about someone, and where to go for help. These are skills everyone should know for themselves and those around them. Free and open to the public.

NOTE: A teen version of this event will happen at 6pm the same evening.
