Expanding inclusive, equitable, and culturally responsive suicide prevention strategies and approaches in our region and across Missouri is essential to fully address the problem of suicide in every community.
The St. Louis Regional Suicide Prevention Coalition in partnership with the Missouri Coalition of Community Behavioral Health have engaged national and regional experts to lead us in a critically important conversation about cultivating equitable and culturally responsive suicide prevention strategies and approaches to address the needs of intersectional communities of color.
Addressing the unique and diverse needs of communities impacted by suicide requires community-engaged solutions. This free series will highlight existing efforts addressing equity in suicide prevention efforts and will explore strategies and perspectives on expanding our approaches to suicide prevention in our communities, in our school systems, and within our public mental health systems.
On Friday, March 12, Dr. Jonathon Singer teams up with Dr. Terry Harris to explore equity in suicide prevention efforts in schools. Part I will take place on Friday, March 5.
Both sessions will take place virtually. Register to attend this free event.
- Jonathon Singer is president of American Association of Suicidology and professor of social work at Loyola University Chicago.
- Terry Harris is executive director of Student Services at Rockwood School District in Missouri.
