2022 Annual Suicide Prevention Symposium

We are disappointed to announce that we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Virtual Suicide Prevention Symposium. While we value and appreciate the work that many dedicated people put into planning this event, we didn’t have the minimum number of registrations to hold the event.

We appreciate your commitment and interest in this important topic.
