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.
North Country Regional Public Health Network works to identify public health needs and create access to resources that support comprehensive planning and implementation for suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention within the region. Through collaboration with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI NH), North Country Regional Public Health Network is engaged in initiatives that expand access to suicide prevention training in the North Country.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for New Hampshire youth ages 10 to 24. The North Country Regional Public Health Network is working to coordinate suicide prevention trainings throughout the North Country that address specific populations at highest risk for suicide.
This work includes capacity building in the North Country region by providing community trainings and Train the Trainer sessions in the Connect Program, a nationally recognized suicide prevention curriculum. The training sessions provide best practices in suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention.
