Forbidden Topic: Seniors and Suicide

Recently, an elderly couple jumped to their death from a fifth floor Las Vegas hotel parking garage. It’s a topic that you don’t hear much about.

The rarely discussed topic of “Seniors and Suicide: Who is At Risk and How to Respond” will be presented at the Parkville YMCA Jan. 17.

Becky Franklin, older adult educator for Tri-County Mental Health Services, will discuss signs of suicide risk among older adults and prevention strategies for caregivers, loved ones and older adults themselves. Free and open to the public, the presentation is from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The YMCA is at 8875 Clark Ave, Parkville, MO 64152
