Suicide Prevention Awareness Month
with the City of North College Hill

The City of North College Hill has proclaimed September Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The City Administration will be working with NAMI SWOH, North College Hill City Schools, St. Paul United Church of Christ, NCH, WeTHRIVE North College Hill, as well as other community stakeholders to provide programs & resources throughout NCH all month long. Suicide Prevention Awareness Month is a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. We will reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness and provide pathways for individuals with suicidal ideation to connect to treatment services. It is also important to ensure that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to help.

Events:

Thursday, September 12
7:00-8:00PM

NCH High School PAC, 1620 West Galbraith, Cincinnati, OH 45239

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).
