Join us on July 11 at the Cedar Rapids Marriott for A Symposium of Hope: Finding Your Role in Suicide Prevention.
This important community presentation is being offered FREE to a capacity crowd of 200 community members and professionals who work with youth and who wanted to learn more about the real struggles of suicide for our young people.
Keynote Speaker: Sue Klebold, author of A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, a New York Times bestseller
Sue Klebold is the mother of Dylan Klebold, who died by suicide. Dylan was one of the two gunmen responsible for the Columbine High School shootings on April 20, 1999 in Littleton, Colorado.
In the aftermath of the tragedy, Ms. Klebold remained out of the public eye while struggling with devastating grief and humiliation. Her search for understanding would span over fifteen years during which she volunteered for suicide prevention organizations, questioned experts, talked with fellow survivors of loss, and examined the crucial intersection between mental health problems and violence. As a result of her exploration, Sue emerged a passionate advocate, dedicated to the advancement of mental health awareness and intervention.
