HAYS — A two-day summit on child suicide scheduled here later this month could turn out to be the largest suicide-prevention forum of any kind in the state in more than a decade, according to organizers.

Led by officials at Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence, planners have set the Kansas Youth Suicide Prevention Summit for July 30-31 on the campus of Fort Hays State University.

The hope is to draw as many as 300 people from around the state, said Headquarters Director Marcia Epstein.

The emphasis of the summit, she said, would be to provide people tools to prevent and address suicide in their communities.
