Trevor Project Workshop - KOAM TV 7

Trevor Project Workshop


A workshop warning of the risk factors for suicide draws one hundred attendees.

Held at Missouri Southern, the Trevor Project workshop was held to educate people about the warning signs of suicide and targeted groups at risk. Local educators, professionals, families and students attended. The workshop coordinator says in the last decade Jasper county has ranked in the top ten for deaths to suicide.

Some of those suicides were related to sexual orientation, organizers want people to know help is out there.

"This is just one piece we wanted to specifically target the risk factors of LGBTQ because its one of the more stigmatized topics in society in general and in our community" says Ozark Center Coordinator Debbie Fitzgerald
