Talk Saves Lives – USF Lost&Found Chapter hosts Suicide Awareness Event

The USF Lost & Found chapter is hosting a very important panel on Suicide Awareness this Tuesday evening, September 22nd, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Meredith Auditorium. The panel will begin with a short presentation called “Talk Saves Lives”. 3 panelists will share their stories and connections to death by suicide. The USF Lost & Found chapter hopes to eliminate some of the stigma surrounding suicide and educate the USF campus on the topics of mental health and suicide.
