Suicide Prevention

                

North Country Regional Public Health Network is engaged in initiatives that expand access to suicide prevention training in the North Country. To build a truly comprehensive safety net, it is important to promote collaboration and bring together key service providers and stakeholders to address community risk and protective factors. This includes discussing attitudes, current practices and cultural factors. 

Prevention Planning Survey - We need your input!

The North Country Regional Public Health Networks is looking for feedback from the community to help guide the creation of a community-wide suicide prevention plan and we would like your help.

The following survey takes about 20 minutes and will ask about many different aspects of your professional community. This community might be the city/town where your organization/agency is located, or it might be the particular community sector in which you work.  Some of aspects addressed on this survey may not be familiar to you or you may not be sure of how it is implemented in your community. If that is the case, skip the item and leave the slider set to "Does not describe my community at all".
