United Way of Southeast Alaska, on behalf of the Juneau Community Suicide Prevention Task Force Outreach Committee, would like to thank the Youth Action Committee and Juneau Community Foundation for the generous grant of $1,650 we received to purchase DVDs from KTOO of Dr. Baugher’s Suicide Intervention Workshop. The DVDs are an integral part of an educational outreach program by the task force to teach as many people in Juneau as possible on how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, how to properly intervene and how to connect the individuals with professional help.
With the rate of suicide being abnormally high in Alaska, it is important that every citizen take part in its prevention. If you have the desire to learn how to prevent or properly intervene or belong to a group who would like a presentation or training, please contact a member of the Juneau Suicide Prevention Task Force or call United Way of Southeast Alaska at 463-5530.
