The Arkansas Tech University Health and Wellness Center will host an American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) program entitled Talk Saves Lives on Monday, Nov. 28.

The session will begin at 2 p.m. in Doc Bryan Student Services Center room 242, 1605 Coliseum Drive in Russellville. Participation will be free and open to the public.

According to AFSP, Talk Saves Lives is a 45-to-60 minute education program that “provides participants with a clear understanding of this leading cause of death, including the most up-to-date research on suicide prevention and what they can do in their communities to save lives.”

Participants will learn common risk factors and warning signs associated with suicide as well as how to keep themselves and others safe.

Talk Saves Lives covers the scope of the suicide problem in the U.S. and worldwide, research about the causes and risk factors for suicide, strategies that lower suicide risk and how to assist someone in a suicidal crisis.

The program will be presented by Jacqueline Sharp, who is Arkansas chapter director for AFSP and an ATU alumna.
