Suicide Prevention Month – Ideas for Action

Posted: Sep 12, 2018

The Suicide Prevention Resource Center created a two page resource with ideas for action in recognition of suicide prevention month.  Farmers are one of the highest occupations that die by suicide.  Please review this helpful resource by clicking here.

AgriSafe believes that due to the shortage of mental health professionals, rural primary care providers need to be trained on screening for suicide risk.  A free webinar that covers integration of behavioral health services can be found by clicking here.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has provided a Suicide Prevention Facts and Resources document available by clicking here.

Finally, you will find AgriSafe’s two page fact sheet on mental health and agriculture along with other resources by clicking here.
