MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) is recognizing Suicide Prevention Week (September 9-15, 2007) this week with a special appearance at the Minnesota Twins game on Saturday, September 15 at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. SAVE is a national, non-profit organization based in Minnesota whose mission is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education and serve as a resource to those touched by suicide.

At the Twins game Saturday evening, SAVE, in partnership with Medica Health Plans, will distribute information on managing depression, healthy living skills and suicide prevention in the Metrodome concourse throughout the evening. Dr. Dan Reidenberg, executive director of SAVE and Scott Craven, regional vice president of United Behavioral Health, will recognize Suicide Prevention Week and the importance of suicide prevention in an on-field, pre-game ceremony.

Also in support of Suicide Prevention Week, SAVE, along with WCCO TV's Chief Meteorologist Paul Douglas, will host a Wine Tasting event Friday, September 14, 6-9 p.m. at Interlachen Country Club in Edina. The Wine Tasting is the fourth event in the 4 Cast 4 Fun series of awareness, education and fundraising events benefiting SAVE. Tickets for the Wine Tasting are available by calling 952-946-7998.

Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the United States with one suicide occurring on average every 16 minutes. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among 15-24 year olds and the third leading cause of death for 10-14 year olds. Each year there are over 500 suicides in Minnesota making it the 10th leading cause of death in the state.

SAVE is committed to the education of the general public about the depressive brain diseases (such as clinical depression and bipolar illness) that can result in suicide if left untreated. By educating the general public about such brain diseases, SAVE strives to remove the stigma associated with these diseases. SAVE's prevention and education programs include a school- based program educating staff, parents and students, community and professional presentation through a volunteer speaker's bureau, professional conference presentations and exhibitions, educational materials distributed internationally, national multi-media public service advertising campaign and community action kits.
