Success of Youth Suicide Prevention Symposium in Grand Junction

From News Channel 5, Grand Junction, Colo. 
On Tuesday, officials at a youth suicide prevention symposium say Mesa County has one of the highest suicide rates in the state. 

The Colorado Department of Education, Office of Suicide Prevention and Colorado School Safety Resource Center hosted a forum for teachers, counselors and mental psychologists about different prevention methods for suicide.

Officials also discussed how to approach students and family after a suicide.

The symposium was able to let education professionals walk away with many programs to use in their classrooms.
