|U2 offers class on preventing, dealing with suicide|
University Within the University (U2) will feature Karyn Hippen, co-founder and facilitator of S.A.S.S. (Support for Adult Survivors of Suicide) and UND Division of Continuing Education outreach specialist, as presenter for the upcoming U2 session titled "Taking Care of Each Other When Tragedy Strikes." In this special U2 session, learn how to recognize some of the warning signs of suicide, how to raise awareness, and how to reach out to someone dealing with a loss from suicide. The information presented in this session can also be applied to any loss or tragic experience.
As Karyn, in her U2 session description says, "There are always bumps in the road at some point in our life's journey. For some, the path through life is rockier than for others. In our work environment we are trained to focus only on our work and leave our personal feelings at the door. But too often, people around us may be suffering in silence, when even the slightest nudge of support and comfort could bring them hope." Please join us for this very moving and educational experience from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, July 17, in the River Valley Room, Memorial Union.
