YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION FORUM

YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION FORUM

18 October 2021, 1:00pm - 3:00pm (AEDT)

Virtual event

 

The mental of a youth has never been more important than it is right now. Many factors such as their social life, social media or academics can lead them to suicide at a young age. Through this forum, the MHFA seeks to find ways to prevent youth suicide and further explore the mental health of the young people through constructive and open discussion to make a meaningful difference.
