Beacon of Light hosts Suicide Awareness and Prevention Night

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-24. Suicide does not discriminate. People of any age, gender, religion, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, ability or success are susceptible.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. At this event, adults and students will receive QPR training (a nationally recognized suicide gatekeeper program: Question, Persuade, and Refer – the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to save a life from suicide). Carrie Cravens, LCSW and Clinical Program Manager of Beacon of Light will train parents on warning signs of suicide and how to take action. At the same time, trained St. Andrew high school students and adults from the St. Andrew Hope Squad will speak to middle and high school students separately. This will also include how to identify warning signs in themselves and others, when to reach out and how to seek help.

When: Sunday, September 10, 5:30-7:00pm

Where: St. Andrew Methodist Church, Student Ministry Area, 5801 W. Plano Pkwy, Plano, TX 75093

Who: All interested adults and students in grades 6-12
