Suicide Prevention event in Kathmandu, Nepal


Note from Anne Moss: Narendra Thagunna PhD is a suicide prevention activist in Nepal who has an annual event that I agreed to help him publish last year and repeating that effort this year. Nepal is not a wealthy country but somehow he has found a way to pull this conference together to educate and help the community prevent suicide.
