safeTALK Suicide Prevention Workshop Suicide rates have been increasing in Minnesota, and are the 10th leading cause of death. More men than women tend to commit suicide, and the highest rate by age in 2018 was adults age 45-54, followed by adults ages 25-34.
Our youth interns and work group have created a survey to gather community input on District 1 needs for out-of-school programs. Please complete the survey to help us gather as much information as possible! Children and youth can complete one as well.
We will be presenting our findings at a community meeting on June 12!
