CrisisLink & National Senior Suicide Prevention Summit

Last week, CrisisLink participated in a first of its kind national senior suicide prevention conference, "It Takes a Community: Opportunities for Mental Health Promotion & Suicide Prevention Efforts in Senior Living Communities." Conference participants discussed, shared, and planned for effective suicide prevention and mental health promotion practices and programs to benefit older adults in residential communities. CrisisLink's Director of Community Education & Crisis Response helped guide the effort to develop protocols and procedures to respond to suicides with comprehensive postvention programs to assist in the grief process and to identify and support survivors at a greater risk for negative outcomes. CrisisLink is proud to be involved in this initiative.
