Power of Connection: Introduction to Suicide Prevention Training
Thursday, November 21, 2019
Suicide prevention is a significant public health concern and a top priority for the City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS). Suicide occurs across all economic, age, social, racial boundaries. Although suicide prevention efforts largely focus on identifying and providing treatment for people with mental health conditions, there are many additional opportunities for prevention. DPHCS recommends that the community takes a comprehensive public health approach to suicide prevention to address the range of contributing factors.
We hope that shifting the culture and starting the conversation about suicide encourages people to talk more openly, increase awareness and, ultimately, curb the trend. We want to educate, decrease stigma, and implement change within the community. Join us at our next free Introduction to Suicide Prevention Training on November 21st from 6-7:30pm at the Nashua Public Library to learn more.
