The 2016 Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Summit

The Shasta County Suicide Prevention Workgroup is pleased to present to our community an opportunity for training and discussion about mental health stigma and
suicide prevention. Shasta County’s suicide rate is
twice the California state average. There are many contributing factors to suicide,
but there is also much we can do to prevent it. Suicide prevention training brings
together an understanding of risk and protective factors, myths surrounding mental
illness, and strategies available to help those in a mental health crisis.
This open training and discussion forum will be followed by, “A Taste of Hope Is Alive!”. A select group of artists from the Hope Is Alive! Open Mic series share their talents and stories of courage, compassion and resilience.
