Understanding warning signs, risk factors, and the process for getting help are critical pieces of suicide prevention, and to address these issues and others, the Huntington Branch of Social Workers, West Virginia chapter, along with Marshall’s Department of Social Work will host a panel with question and answer forum, Monday, Nov. 7, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Harless Auditorium at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
Registration begins at 4 p. m. The cost is a $20 donation, by check or cash, which will go to Messages for Hope, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding survivors of suicide loss through peer-facilitated support groups.
There is no charge for students who have valid Marshall IDs. Three continuing education hours are available for W.Va. licensed social workers (provider #490013).
Reservations should be made by Nov. 1 to Francie Roberts Buchanan at firstname.lastname@example.org. If paying by check, please write “NASW CE EVENT” in the subject line. Light refreshments will be provided.
