Submitted by Debra Bolton

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Workshop to take the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop hosted by the Kansas State Family Center from 1-2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, via Zoom.

Suicide is a difficult topic that affects many people in different ways. This presentation is built to provide a safe space where knowledge is given while questions can be asked. Also, this will be a safe space to challenge the stigmatization of trauma, mental health and suicide.

Register here for the Oct. 27 Safe Zone Advance Workshop with the Kansas State Family Center.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. Safe Zone was created to help those facing sexual orientation discrimination. Revitalization of the initiative in 2002 created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving Safe Zone effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies become educated to help those coming from a variety of backgrounds and identities with needs concerning exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns or sexual violence.
