#StartTheConversation

As we head into the school year we want to remind the young people in our community that their safety in schools and at home is a priority. Studies have shown that suicide is the leading cause of death for Utahns between the ages of 11-17, and over half of youth suicides are attributed to use of firearms. Salt Lake City’s Youth City government has teamed up with Mayor Biskupski to address concerns about gun violence in our community by creating an event that will educate families on youth suicide. We invite families with youth ages 10-18 to join us at the Sorenson Unity Center to #StartTheConversation.
