Suicide Prevention 365

As we come to the close of Suicide Prevention Month we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the work that is being done around the country as well as the work we are doing here at The Harris Center and the partners we serve as the Regional Suicide Care Support Center. 

As Zero Suicide is part of the current and future oriented strategic planning at our agency, suicide care is something we are always focused on, however, this month we did put a focus on sending out weekly educational emails, increased our awareness posts on Twitter and Facebook and introduced the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging calendar with an emphasis on how this work impacts suicide prevention work.  


While many great efforts have taken place during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, there is still much more work to be done. In 2019 more than 47,000 people died by suicide and 1 Million more people attempted suicide in the United States alone. Every day a person is affected by suicide in some capacity; and thus, every day we should continue to raise awareness and support suicide safe care efforts in our communities. We will be continuing the discussion here at The Harris Center by sending suicide care tips, resources, and news to your inboxes each month, creating a new suicide-care page in the Harrisphere, offering additional training opportunities, and continuing efforts toward implementing the Zero Suicide Framework.   


It is our hope that the resources you received this month, and in the upcoming months, will help you to continue discussions about suicide safe care with your colleagues, families, friends, and the community at large.
