This workshop was developed to:
- help educate people about suicide
- help emphasize the brain is an organ
- help remove the stigma with mental health and suicide
- to encourage people to seek treatment when they or someone they know is in need.
For further information about having this presented at your school, office, community or church, please contact us.
KMSAC's posters, flyers and magnets are male focused. Here's why:
- Although females attempt suicide more than three times as often as males; males die by suicide more than four times as often as the females. This is due to the methods being more lethal.
- In the age 10 to 24 group, 81% of the suicide deaths were males and 19% were females.
The Campaign Lapel Pin™
