MIDVALE — Canyons School District parents are invited to a suicide prevention seminar.
The free event is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 23, 7-8 p.m. in the auditorium of Hillcrest High School, 7350 S. 900 East. The seminar also will be delivered in Spanish in AT 200.
The seminar will provide parents information about suicide prevention and child wellness resources, signs a loved one may be at risk, and tips on how to intervene and report concerns.
Utah has appointed statewide suicide prevention coordinators to work at the Utah Department of Human Services and the Utah State Office of Education. A new Utah law also requires secondary schools to implement suicide prevention programs, and local school boards to approve policies requiring parent notification of bullying and suicide threats.
The Canyons Board of Education approved the Reporting Student Safety Policy last month.
