Washtenaw County Suicide Prevention Town Hall

In response to a steady upward trend in suicides locally, a town hall will be held on Feb. 7 to increase community awareness, promote prevention strategies and provide information on local resources.

Suicide attempts and suicide completions have increased in Washtenaw County, especially among young people 15-24 years old. Washtenaw County Public Health, Washtenaw County Community Mental Health and other community agencies and partners are working together to monitor and address both suicide attempts and completions with the goal of reversing this trend in Washtenaw County. 

A town hall will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 7. Information regarding local resources will be provided and mental and behavioral health experts will be available to answer community questions about prevention. The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
