Talk Saves Lives – Introduction to Suicide Prevention
In partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, NEMHC is hosting Talk Saves Lives, a FREE suicide awareness program.
We’re encouraging parents, teachers, coaches, counselors or anyone who works with young people to attend this event. AFSP will share the most up-to-date research on suicide prevention, and what we can do in our community to save lives.
Topics covered include:
- Scope of the Problem: The latest data on suicide in the U.S. and worldwide
- Research: Information from research on what causes people to consider suicide, as well as health, historical, and environmental factors that put individuals at risk
- Prevention: An understanding of the protective factors that lower suicide risk, and strategies for managing mental health and being proactive about self-care
- What You Can Do: Guidance on warning signs and behaviors to look for, and how to get help for someone in a suicidal crisis
