Joe Denoyer - November 6, 2018 8:05 am

 

TOPEKA – (November 5, 2018) – A task force formed to study and recommend ways to reduce the incidence of youth suicide will meet Friday in Dodge City.

The task force, formed by the Tower Mental Health Foundation and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, will meet on Friday, November 9, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Dodge City Depot Theater in the El Vaquero Room at 101 E. Wyatt Earp Blvd., in Dodge City. The meeting is open to the public.

Schmidt and the Tower Foundation’s chairman, Dr. Walt Menninger, announced the formation of the group in June. The group will survey and report on efforts already underway in Kansas to counter youth suicide and recommend further steps to address the situation.

An additional meeting is scheduled for next month in Topeka. Details about all upcoming task force meetings, including opportunities to submit written testimony or to testify at one of the meetings, can be found at www.ag.ks.gov/ysptf or by calling (800) 828-9745. All persons with information about youth suicide-prevention efforts in Kansas are encouraged to testify.
