|Miss North Dakota to speak on suicide prevention|
Miss North Dakota, Tessie Jones, will be a guest presenter at an upcoming U2 session, “Taking Care of Each Other When Tragedy Strikes” Thursday, July 17. The newly crowned Miss North Dakota wants to focus this next year on mental health and suicide prevention and has been involved with the Mental Health America of North Dakota and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
When asked about why she chose her platform, Jones replied, "The more people that I can talk to, the more people who I can spread that message to, the more lives we can save. I can make a difference this year by spreading that message, because every person who hears that and looks for the warning signs of suicide can go to those people around them and save lives.”
If you are interested in attending this session presented by Karyn Hippen, co-founder/facilitator of S.A.S.S. (Support for Adult Survivors of Suicide), it will be offered from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, July 17, in the River Valley Room, Memorial Union.
