PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH AND PREVENTING SUICIDE: A TOOLKIT FOR SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITIES

Pin It

Statistics show that adults age 65 and older have one of the highest suicide rates of any age group in the United States. This new SAMHSA toolkit teaches staff working in senior living communities how to recognize and take steps to help someone at risk of suicide. The ideas presented in this toolkit can help prevent suicides, promote mental health, and create an environment that will enhance the well-being of residents and staff alike. http://mentalhealth.samhsa.gov/publications/allpubs/SMA10-4515/
