Kevin Hines On CBS Sunday Morning

Please watch and share this excellent segment on CBS Sunday morning!  Kevin Hines is featured, along with research discussing the importance of showing people “you care” in preventing suicide.

https://www.cbsnews.com/video/how-caring-letters-prevent-suicide/

Kevin Hines is a walking miracle, having jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and survived. But what might have kept him from jumping at all could have been something as simple as getting a letter in the mail. One psychiatrist’s long-forgotten idea about giving support to those hospitalized or treated for depression or attempting suicide is being revived, and is finding positive results in an era of texting. Lee Cowan reports.
[If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.]

Recommendations for State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure 2019

The first-ever official recommendations for State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure have been released!  Developed with an advisory panel of experts and stakeholders, the guidelines lay out essential infrastructure elements for advancing state suicide prevention efforts. They are designed to help state policy leaders assess the status of their current infrastructure and guide policy making, funding, and administrative decisions accordingly. These guidelines may also be useful to others who support suicide prevention at the federal, state, and local level, including funders, suicide prevention coordinators, prevention coalitions, community organizations, advocates, and researchers.

 

Also note a couple of examples from NV (in the Lead and Examine sections). To see the examples, click on individual elements (e.g. Lead) and go into the individual recommendations themselves, where you’ll see a “Sway” (like a powerpoint) that lists examples as you click through the arrows.

LEARN MORE: View the recommendations online or visit the tools section to download a PDF version, as well as a two-page summary and an interactive checklist. To stay updated on new tools and content that will be added in the coming months, sign up for SPRC’s new State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure mailing list.

 

SPREAD THE WORD: Help champion the new recommendations by sharing this announcement with your networks, including the following suggested social media posts (& attached promotional image):
