Program Location: Harriton High School Auditorium
600 N. Ithan Avenue, Rosemont, PA 19010

For parents/guardians of students K-12

Suicide prevention is an important topic for all those who work with children and young adults. The very popular TV show "13 Reasons Why" has had students and parents talking - which is good, but we want to ensure that the conversation is informative and constructive. Please join us for an important discussion about this often silent crisis. The conversation will be led by Dr. Matt Wintersteen, Assistant Professor and Director of Research in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Medical College specializing in research on suicide prevention and intervention in adolescents and young adults.
