The Central Montana Education Center is hosting a wonderful learning opportunity to educate ourselves about one of our most difficult ,and hard to understand problems in our lives today, suicide.
Montana currently has the highest suicide rate in the United States and Tuesday, March 14, retired school psychologist Rick Wright will present and Tursday March 16th, will moderate a panel of professionals concerning suicide facts and the need for education and prevention.
Rick Wright is not new to the schools of Central Montana, retiring recently after decades of working with and coaching our students.
During the first night, information will be provided on signs and symptoms of individuals who may be at risk and how to help. Depression looks different for children, adolescents, and adults. Knowing those differences & being able to recognize them may help save a life. The second night, a panel of professionals in the medical and mental health fields will speak to & take questions from the participants.
Rick's presentation and the later facilitation of a panel discussion on suicide facts, signs and prevention is highly recommended for educators, concerned family members and our community at large. The cost is $20 though the Central Montana Education Center with OPI Recertification credit available.
