On Thursday, November 10, PSU's Center for Interdisciplinary Mentoring Research is pleased to partner with Oregon Mentors to present a special training on Youth Suicide Prevention.

First, Del Quest, a doctoral student in the PSU School of Social Work will present the recent national studies on youth suicide prevention and qualitative findings on what youth and teachers say about prevention here in the Northwest.

Then Sonja Miller, coordinator for Integrated Behavioral Health, Mental Health and Addiction Services Division at Multnomah County, will inform participants about the warning signs and how to access resources for youth in trouble.

The event is free and breakfast will be provided, but RSVP is required because space is very limited.
