World Mental Health Day 2019: Suicide Prevention

Hi I’m Jill and I’m the Program Manager
of Naomi Center with Stella’s Circle. October 10th is World Mental Health Day
and the theme this year is suicide prevention. Suicide is a global public
health issue and it is the second leading cause of death for individuals
between the ages of 15 and 29. Here at Stella’s Circle the majority of our
participants struggle with mental health. There’s still a lot of stigma
surrounding mental health and suicide. In response to that at Stella’s Circle we are
providing suicide intervention training to all of our staff so that we’re better
able to respond to the needs of our participants. By offering this training
we’re making our communities safer for everyone.
