Dr. Bob DuBois, PhD, Social Sciences Instructor, Waukesha County Technical College
While in many ways, today’s youth are doing better than the youth of the past, they are not immune to the increasing stress of modern life. In this presentation, we will review current research related to the prevalence and nature of mental illness and suicidal behavior among today’s youth. Participants will learn how to recognize and help youth in crisis and will earn certification as QPR Gatekeepers for Suicide Prevention.
