May 22, 2014 -- 7pm at Utah County Health Department

National Prevention Week, May 18th to 24th, will include a special "Suicide Prevention Town Hall Meeting" on May 22nd at 7 p.m. at the Utah County Health and Justice Building (151 S. University Ave, Provo). The evening keynote speaker will be Dr. Greg Hudnall, HOPE Task Force executive director. "Ask a Question, Save a Life" is this year's theme, and Dr. Hudnall will be providing "Question, Persuade, Refer" (QPR) training. Participants are NOT asked to counsel someone who is suicidal, but to recognize the signs, ask the questions, persuade them to get help, and refer them to a resource that can offer immediate assistance. Representatives from the Utah County Crisis Line, Hope4Utah, NAMI Utah, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Crisis Line, the American Legion, the BYU Comprehensive Clinic, SMART Utah County, Intermountain Healthcare, Wasatch Mental Health, and others will also be on hand starting at 6 p.m.

For more details please call 801-851-7509 or see www.Hope4utah.com, www.wasatch.org, www.VeteransWIN.org, or www.UtahCountyHealth.org.
