We'll talk about a partnership between Johnson County and the University of Iowa to offer free suicide prevention courses.Guests Include: Dale Chell, Youth Suicide Prevention Coordinator at the Iowa Department of Public Health, Jerry Campbell, a Des Moines resident who lost his brother to suicide in 2007, and John Shean, Crisis Intervention Program Coordinator at the Johnson County Crisis Center.
