Free NCORE webinar April 7
Killing Me Softly: Suicide Among African American, Asian, Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ Students is a free webinar hosted by NCORE at 3 p.m. CST April 7. Registration is required to attend.
The purpose of this session is three-fold: 1) to enhance institutional awareness of suicide risk, which is the second leading cause of death among college-aged students; 2) to examine certain racial, ethnic, and cultural dynamics, gender identities, and sexual orientations, and their relationship to suicide risk and protective factors; 3) to offer participants an opportunity to work, in small groups, to develop strategies for reducing on-campus suicide risk factors, while simultaneously increasing protective factors among diverse populations.
