Raider Salute for help with suicide prevention program

A Raider Salute from Ellen Stuart, from the Nursing Department:

We would like to thank the entire staff at the ATC in helping to make our conference a success on Saturday the 22nd. Although we had inclement weather in the early morning, about 60 people gathered to hear Christy Buck, Executive Director of the Mental Health Foundation, deliver a powerful message about the need to reduce the stigma related to mental health disorders and the treatment of these disorders. A panel of survivors bravely expressed how they are coping with their losses in constructive ways. The six nursing students from the Transcultural Community Nursing course (AD 248)  helped in a variety of ways to make valuable contributions, which were appreciated by the community gathered.
