Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people in Iowa and at least 20% of young people have a mental illness with fewer than 20% receiving treatment.  In 2016, the Iowa Youth Survey indicated that 13.4% of survey participants shared that they had seriously contemplated suicide in the last year.  This jam packed session will explore basic mental health characteristics, suicide prevention warning signs, and some classroom/school strategies.  Sometimes knowing is half the battle.
