Plano’s Victim Services Unit Tackles Suicide Awareness

Suicide help

Would you know what to do if someone you know or love is suicidal? The Plano Police Victim Services Unit presents a public meeting to address the serious topic of suicide called “Ask. Listen. Take ACTION!” This seminar helps you understand how prevalent suicide is, how to recognize the warning signs, and how to share the appropriate steps if you discover a loved one is in crisis.

Sadly, suicides have increased nationwide, so detecting the symptoms as soon as possible could save someone’s life. Who are at higher risk – men, women or teens? Join the meeting to learn the answer to that question and more:

Tuesday, July 17

6:30-8:30 p.m.

Plano Police Headquarters, J.B. Toler Room

909 14th Street

Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Members of the Victim’s Assistance Program will discuss many important topics.

This seminar is free, but you must register online to reserve a seat.

Victim Advocates Kristy Hoffpauir and Jessica Serrano are a great resource if you have questions (972-941-2680).
