Making Suicide Prevention a Workplace Priority

Description: Every employee can promote mental health and help prevent suicide. Simple steps such as stress management or depression screening help employees maintain their own mental health. They can also use specific tactics to help promote the mental health and safety of others.

A comprehensive, evidence-based approach to suicide prevention and mental health promotion already exists. Hear from Sally Spencer-Thomas at the Carson J Spencer Foundation about a practical and cost-effective approach. By being “visible, vocal, and visionary” leaders, employers set the expectation that health and safety are a priority and that mental health promotion and suicide prevention are a critical part of it.

Guest Speaker:
Sally Spencer-Thomas, CEO and Co-Founder, Carson J Spencer Foundation
