You’ve seen the headlines: suicide rates have increased 33% since 1999 in the US according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These deaths cut across all demographic groups – no segment is immune. But we are not powerless – there are ways to help.
Amplify coordinates the Regional Suicide Advisory Board. This regional coalition provides the local infrastructure to build capacity and to promote suicide prevention activities in support of the vision of the CT Suicide Advisory Board and as outlined in the State Plan. Activities include training in how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, intervention and postvention best practices (promoting healing and reducing risk after a suicide) and grief support resources.
While suicide can feel like an individual act, it doesn’t happen in vacuum and its ripple effect can be profound.
Be the one to start the conversation.
