Eric Evans
Suicide 101: Awareness & Prevention

About the Topic
With nearly 1 in 3 Indiana high school students (29.3%) feeling sad or hopeless almost every day for at least 2 weeks, according to the Indiana State Department of Health, we as a community must come together to support our youth. By understanding the prevalence of suicide and exploring the elevated risk factors in today’s climate, we can identify ways to better prevent youth suicides.
