Please join Integral Care for a community forum on Youth Suicide Prevention.
Ethnic, racial, and sexual minority youth are shown to be at higher risk of suicide than their majority peers. Using a cultural identities framework, presenters from the University of Texas at Austin, will discuss risk factors as well as the skills, strength and resources that protect youth from suicide. Joining the panel will be Megan Alvarado, a young adult with lived experience, sharing her message of hope.
