Suicide Prevention – Public Listening Session
September 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Wolf Administration announced the creation of a statewide Suicide Prevention Task Force on May 29th. The goal of this task force is to bring together state agencies with differing responsibilities and constituencies to inform a comprehensive, statewide suicide prevention plan.
Suicide does not discriminate, and all ages, genders, regions, and socioeconomic statuses may be affected. Because of this, the task force is seeking public input on their ideas for suicide prevention, education around mental health and suicide, and how to dispel the stigma around suicide and mental health.
Public listening sessions are taking place around the commonwealth. The following session will be held in Philadelphia:
- Thursday, September 26, 5:30-7:30 p.m. – Temple University – Philadelphia, PA
You can register for the listening sessions here. Please complete one registration per participant from your organization or family. If you would like to speak, please indicate that on your registration. Additional details on locations and parking will be sent ahead of each event.
