LAWRENCE, Kan. (KPR) — An event in Lawrence this Sunday hopes to use poetry and music to raise awareness about suicide prevention. Hosted by Lawrence resident Marcia Epstein, longtime suicide prevention advocate and grief counselor, and others, the Words Save Lives event will be held at the historic Union Pacific Depot in North Lawrence from 5 to 9 p.m.

The event has been an annual tradition in Lawrence since 2014 and coincides with World Suicide Prevention Day. The event features poetry, music, the spoken word and personal stories.

The event is free of charge but donations are appreciated. The money raised will help offset event expenses and provide free support services to those in need.
