Communities can bond together to fight suicide, but often we are unsure about what our role should be in the fight. There are a number of ways that we, as community members, can address suicide in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, churches, and other public and private areas in our communities. Dr. Wright-Berryman, a suicidologist and assistant professor of social work at the University of Cincinnati will discuss 1) What suicide is (debunking myths), 2) What we know about what works to combat suicide (the evidence base of programs), and 3) How we can determine and develop our role in community-based suicide prevention efforts (public health approaches).
