I am excited to announce a new resource, available online, for you:
Suicide: Breaking the Silence:
Community Awareness Video and Discussion Guide.
They were developed by the Yamhill County Suicide Prevention Coalition in Oregon for community forums they held to get people together to talk openly about suicide and mental health issues. Take a look and download the video and discussion guide at http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/ysp/video.shtml.
You may use these resources to educate yourself and others. If you were looking for a community activity to start a discussion, raise awareness about suicide, and reduce stigma - this is a wonderful tool.
I want to give a special thank you to Tanya Tompkins (chair) and the Yamhill County Suicide Prevention Coalition for developing these tools and making them available for all of us to use.
You also may link to the video and discussion guide from Oregon Public Health Division's youth suicide prevention home page at http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ipe/ysp/.
I encourage you to watch the video, read the discussion guide, and share them with others.
