    The UVU College of Humanities and Social Sciences, UVU Crisis Services, Student Affairs, and the UVU Veteran’s Center are pleased to present the 2020 UVU Conference on Suicide Prevention. With the devastating social, emotional, and economic impacts of the pandemic, we know that mental health is more important than ever. This single-day conference--designed to meet the needs and interests of professionals, service providers, families, community members, and students--will provide information on a wide range of topics dealing with suicide, suicide prevention, and mental health.Despite moving to a virtual conference, we still plan to offer a full conference program, including keynote, plenary, and concurrent sessions intended to help participants find hope and healing as they explore the complex aspects of suicide, suicide prevention, and recovery. We also plan to continue to offer professional CEUs, including suicide prevention specific CEUs for those that need them. All session materials, including recordings of all the conference presentations, will be available to registered participants for two weeks after the conference date.This year, we are delighted to welcome sculptor Gary Lee Price as our keynote speaker. Gary found a life path of positivity through his art. Despite a childhood of abuse, domestic violence, and the loss of both parents at a young age due to murder-suicide, Gary forged ahead determined to find the beauty in life. His passion for art and belief that art empowers and lifts the human spirit has only grown stronger. Blessed with many generous and selfless mentors, his dream is to pass those gifts on to others.
