Tune in on Monday, May 6th at 3:00 p.m. EDT as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration hosts a Live Webcast of SAMHSA’s 2019 National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day event “Suicide Prevention: Strategies That Work”
This year’s Awareness Day theme is “Suicide Prevention: Strategies That Work,” and SAMHSA will focus on the impact that suicide has on children, youth, young adults, families, and communities. During the event in Washington, DC, SAMHSA will showcase evidence-based strategies to connect those in need to information, services, and supports that can save lives.
SAMHSA’s event will include suicide prevention experts and leaders of national mental health organizations, along with families and youth who will share stories about how evidence-based practices saved children’s lives and put them on a path to recovery.
The format will be similar to TED Talks to provide an opportunity to educate state agency personnel; primary and mental health care providers; child-serving professionals; and families, youth, and young adults across the country about the latest evidence-based practices and resources for suicide prevention.
Be sure not to miss this great opportunity to learn about strategies and resources for preventing suicide among children, youth, and young adults.
