Presentation by: Jane R. Wiggins, Director of the Campus Suicide Prevention Center of Virginia

About the Conference:

The conference will focus on multi-strategic approaches to suicide prevention, as well as on sharing community-building and suicide prevention resouces across regional campuses. Afternoon working sessions will develop a prevention and intervention manual using examples generated out of campus experiences of participants. We will examine way to build connections that are effective for students at the individual, campus and regional levels.
