Attend our Sept. 22, 12 p.m., Suicide Prevention Month Webinar
A Suicide Prevention Strategy: Facilitating Critical Connections During Times of Transitionshttps://neomed.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_uFHEjtsWQlOpBxCevMJsaQ
The webinar will help participants appreciate the significantly increased risk for suicide during transitions - whether they are from inpatient or emergency to outpatient psychiatric care, from home to college or university, from jail or prison to community, or following a mental illness diagnosis or initial relapse - and the need for people who are struggling or in crisis to feel supported during these transitions. The webinar will also help participants learn about programs and interventions offered by the coordinating centers of excellence that reduce suicide risk by fostering connections at critical times.

Thank you for your continued partnership and your commitment to our shared mission of improving the quality of care and the quality of life for people affected by mental illnesses, their loved ones and their communities.
