                 common: The host organization is trying to accomplish a goal. Identifying the key
                 measurement metrics that can show the relationship between the elements that make up an

Tues., Oct. 18   GUIDING LIGHT: Helping Parents Comprehend the Potential for Suicide in their Children Webinar
                 1-2:30 PM (MDT)

                 Participants can register for the web events by visiting https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/313641650

                 This FREE webinar features DONNA HOLLAND BARNES, Ph.D., and RAYMOND ZABLOTNY, M.D. Both survivors of suicide loss of a
                 child, Drs. Barnes and Zablotny have applied their personal experiences and professional insight to advance suicide prevention. Dr. Barnes
                 is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Howard University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., where she teaches suicide
                 risk management to psychiatric residents and third-year medical students. Dr. Zablotny is retired Chief of Psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente
                 San Francisco, and is Assistant Clinical Professor at the UCSF Department of Psychiatry.

                 "Given the link between mental illness and risk for suicide, the question of how to reach children at a young age is more important than
                 ever, particularly since emerging research suggests that intervening as early as first grade may dramatically change the life course
                 trajectory for at-risk youth—including reducing suicidality in later years. This is significant in its implications for the field of suicide
                 prevention."

                 This is the SECOND webinar is a series of THREE made available to the public.

                 This webinar series is free and open to any adult who interacts with or influences policy affecting youths, such as school administrators,
                 community youth services providers, student services personnel, school board members, education policymakers, community prevention
                  coalitions, law enforcement officers, and juvenile justice personnel.

                  Previous Well Aware Webinars have addressed issues relevant to youth suicide prevention, including crisis response, latest and best
                  school-based strategies, helping youth who have lost a peer or sibling to suicide, and new media and youth suicide prevention, including
                  cyberbullying. All Well Aware Webinars are available online at www.wellawaresp.org/webinars.php.

                  In addition to free online web seminars, Well Aware provides information and resources on the role schools and communities have in
                  suicide prevention, with data about the tragedy of youth suicide, its economic burden, and suicide as a preventable public health threat.
Thurs., Oct. 20   Meaningfully Engaging Law Enforcement in Coalition Efforts Online / Audio Conference
                  1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. (MDT)
                  As a coalition, have you experienced the challenge of engaging your law enforcement partners in a meaningful way? Perhaps you are a law
                  enforcement officer and are wondering what your role might be with a local coalition? Join us as we discuss the keys to engaging and
                  sustaining a successful partnership between coalitions and law enforcement. We will learn the "do's and don'ts", the culture, and some of
                  the best practices as we hear from successful community and enforcement practitioners.

                  1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. (MDT)

                  This teleconference will examine crimes committed in the U.S. where alcohol is a factor. The Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and
                  Chiefs of Police, beginning in the spring of 2005, received funding support to collect and evaluate alcohol-related arrest data to more
                  accurately determine the scope and impact of alcohol on crime, with the purpose of formulating effective enforcement strategies to reduce
                  the number of alcohol-related crimes and traffic crashes in Wyoming. The data collection has been refined and expanded since then, and
                  the overall conclusions will be shared by a well-respected researcher in the field of criminal justice, including what local communities can do
                  to reduce alcohol-related crime in their areas.
