Suicide prevention training offered

By Tammara Fogle | August 31, 2022

Learn how you can help prevent suicide and raise community awareness of the issue during a workshop at the Advanced Learning Library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13.

Dr. Jessica Provines, a psychologist and assistant vice president for wellness at Wichita State University, will present evidence-based suicide prevention training. 

The workshop is being sponsored by the Wichita Journalism Collaborative in partnership with the Sedgwick County Health Department, WSU and Suspenders4Hope, a WSU suicide prevention program active since 2015. The collaborative, which includes The Active Age and nine other media and community organizations, has made community mental health a focus of its efforts.

The training is geared toward people who consider themselves influencers of opinion in the greater Wichita area, but anyone is welcome to attend.

Lunch will be provided, so registration is encouraged. To register, visit
