This DVD tackles the tough subject of youth suicide and provides strategies of awareness and prevention for parents.  The presentation consists of statistical information about youth suicide, warning signs of suicidal ideation, elevated risk factors, what a parent can do, and resources for assistance.  On disc 1, a facilitator guide is included which easily leads the facilitator through the steps necessary to present the program.  Talking points are also provided to help the facilitator initiate discussion and answer questions regarding the information provided.  The presentation that will be viewed by the audience is on Disk 2.  Everything needed to present the program is included on these two disks. Time allotted for this presentation and discussion should be approximately two hours.
