Dr. Tammi Ginsberg, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
Title: Talk Saves Lives: An Introduction to Suicide Prevention.
Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in Maryland. Tragically, we have recently lost members of our physics community to suicide. Raising awareness is an important first step toward prevention.
This community-based presentation will cover the general scope of suicide, the research on prevention, and what people can do to fight suicide. Attendees will learn the risk and warning signs of suicide, and how together, we can help prevent it.
