Join us as we host “Shouldn’t we all, ASK the Question:
Youth Suicide Prevention Conference and Training Day”
September 22 + 23, 2016
Embassy Suites by Hilton – Portland Downtown
The Shouldn’t we all, ASK the Question: Youth Suicide Prevention Event serves as a “best practice” conference and training offering participants in-depth information and the latest research in the field of suicide and suicide prevention. The event is hosted by Lines for Life and funded through Oregon Public Health Division’s Youth Suicide Prevention Program’s Garret Lee Smith Act grant from SAMHSA.
The conference is designed for an adult audience with basic knowledge about suicide and suicide prevention, and wishes to increase knowledge and build competency. The two-day event (pre-conference certified training option and full day conference) will increase knowledge, practice, and access to best practices in youth suicide prevention across sectors and bring stakeholders together.
The theme, “Shouldn’t we all, ASK the Question”, guides a program of evidenced-based tools affecting various populations across generations, with an intentional focus on youth, and provides participants with information to use in everyday practical applications. The conference features national expert, David Covington on Zero Suicide; Elaine De Mello with NAMI Connect; as well as local professionals to address suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention issues.
Registration is now closed for this event.
