The co-founders of Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention International will give three presentations, as well as a training program, in the Shawano area next month.
Dar and Dale Emme, of Westminster, Colorado, will discuss suicide awareness, including risk factors and warning signs, and suicide prevention skills at Shawano Community Middle School, 1050 S. Union St., on Oct. 12. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. in Room 162.
They also will speak from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 10 at the St. Anthony Community Center, W6797 Church St., Neopit, and from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 13 at Father David Barrett Hall, St. Michael Catholic Church, N816 State Highway 47, Keshena.
All the programs are free and open to the public. They are sponsored by ROADS (Reaching Out About Depression And Suicide).
This will be the Emmes’ fourth visit to the Shawano area. They lost their high school age son, Michael, to suicide.
