2021 Suicide Prevention Symposium


Registration is now open (Free)!

Flyer - Suicide Prevention Symposium


Sympsoium Details:

Suicide impacts people in many ways. For some, it's about the loss of a loved one, for others it's the experience of surviving an attempt to end their life, and for others it's about caring for a person experiencing a suicidal crisis. With this in mind, we acknowledge everyone who has been impacted by suicide.

The 2021 Suicide Prevention Symposium is being hosted by the Colorado School Safety Resource Center (CSSRC). The Symposium is highly regarded for its opportunities to collaborate, network and learn about new approaches to suicide prevention.

  • Speakers Confirmed to Date:

    • Keynote speakers will be John Ackerman who is the Suicide Prevention Coordinator for the Center for Suicide Prevention and Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and he will discuss postvention in schools and Brandon Johnson from SAMHSA who will address minority youth mental health issues.

    • The afternoon will be devoted to creating a suicide strategy in your district and the CSSRC Youth Suicide Assessment and Intervention Toolkit for mental health providers who want to be trained to use the new instruments.
