Registration and coffee begins at 8:30am; presentation begins at 9am

Our focus this year is Suicide: Across All Ages and Stages.

Suicide takes life without regard to age, income, education, social standing, race, or gender. Overall, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for all Americans, the 2nd leading cause of death for adults ages 25-34, and the 3rd leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24. In Kentucky, suicide is the 11th leading cause of death. On average, one person dies by suicide every 12 hours in Kentucky. actionallianceforsuicideprevention.org; afsp.org/about-suicide/state-fact-sheets

We hope to see you at our conference on December 7, 2018
