  • Creating a Safer Space In Our Parks - Speakers: Lori DeYoung and Sylvia Maixner

Just as many people come to our parks for the recreational opportunities that are offered, so do others who are struggling with hopelessness, who come to secluded nature areas to die by suicide. The impact that this has on both park staff and visitors who encounter or learn about these deaths can be both tragic and long-lasting. Join us as we hear presenters from the Indiana National Guard and the Indianapolis VA Medical Center, who will provide Park staff with valuable information on how to create safer spaces in our parks and recreational areas through an increased awareness, knowledge, and access to resources around suicide prevention.

  • Coming Soon!

2:30 PM | Demos
