Programs and Policies in Wisconsin
Free and Open to the Public

Suicide rates among Wisconsin youth continue to exceed the national rate, and recent data show that 1 in 6 Wisconsin high school students have considered attempting suicide in the previous year. Helping our communities prevent suicideΒ in youth, and across the lifespan, requires a multi-pronged approach in our schools, homes, and workplaces.
Join the Evidence-Based Health Policy Project for a Capitol Briefing on strategies to prevent suicide among youth and young adults in Wisconsin. Panelists from public, academic, and non-profit organizations will discuss current data, programs, and policies for lawmakers and others to consider.
With a panel featuring:

Sara Kohlbeck, Assistant Director
Comprehensive Injury Center
Medical College of Wisconsin

Kate McCoy, Youth Risk Behavior Survey Coordinator
Gregg Curtis, School Counseling and Suicide Prevention Consultant
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

Valerie Donovan, Suicide Prevention Coordinator
