Community & Family Education Meeting Returns Online!
Mental Health Awareness: A Focus on Suicide and Stigma
Concerns about suicide prevention and the effects of stigma and discrimination that delay people from seeking needed mental health care are issues that affect our community and families all year round – beyond world-wide Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month (September). Join us for a presentation from PsychU’s Sara A. Spencer, PharmD, MS, BCGP and local provider Dr. Wendy Weinstein, board-certified psychiatrist and Unit Chief at BryLin Hospital about how we can:
– improve mental health outcomes to reduce suicide and understand risk
– help people get help when they need it
– work to end stigma and discrimination
To attend, email your interest to email@example.com with Subject “Education Meeting 10/20” and your name. We will email you the link to attend.
You may want to look at newly released Harris Poll results on a new national public perception survey of more than 2,000 adults in the U.S. to better understand the public’s attitudes and beliefs about mental health, suicide prevention and the nation’s crisis hotline services. The survey shows that U.S. adults see mental health and suicide as high priority Issues, and still face barriers to seeking help.
The next Education meetings will be on November 17 and January 19 (no meeting in December due to holidays). Save those dates!
