Upcoming Events

Early one fall semester at Utah Valley State College, student Garrett Smith succumbed to a lifelong depression and took his own life. His devasted family, including Oregon Senator Gordon H. Smith (R, Oregon) found their lives changed forever. Senator Smith wrote a book about the experience, Remembering Garrett and sponsored legislation that would fund higher education to combat severe student depression.

On October 23rd we welcome Senator Smith as he continues his education crusade on suicide in young people. Utah has devastatingly high suicide rates, and UVSC seems to have an even higher rate.

Join us on 10/23/2006 at 10-11:30 in the Ragan Theatre for an informative and welcome presentation.
