Empowering Voices to Save Lives @ Fox Valley Technical College, Room C190 ABC | Appleton | Wisconsin | United States

According to the 2016 Fox Cities Life Study, “12% of Fox Cities high school students have attempted suicide and 15.3% have seriously considered suicide.”

“Empowering Voices to Save Lives ” is open to all community members and will showcase nationally renowned speaker: Mettie Spiess. This presentation will captivate the audience through the unmasking of Mettie’s journey living with mental illness, suicidal loss, and uniting communities to find their voice. The keynote address will cover topics of youth suicide prevention and mental health support. Fox Cities parents, guardians, educators, youth social workers and other interested community members will gain skills to safely support adolescents in crisis.

This event is supported by a Bright Idea Grant from the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
