Webinar to focus on preventing suicide

Do you know the risk factors and warning signs of someone with suicidal thoughts? Do you want to learn more about suicide prevention and how you can help?

A free webinar Wednesday, September 14, can provide answers. Led by Mohsan Beg, director of the Student Counselling Centre, it runs noon to 1 p.m. and will focus on:

  • how to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide,
  • what to do if you think a loved one is contemplating suicide, and
  • services available in Windsor and Essex County to turn to for assistance. 

Registration is available for individuals or groups through the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.

This is Suicide Prevention Awareness Week. Additional information and resources are available on the http://www.suicideprevention.ca website.
