Bold Moves Against Suicide Louisville

on Fri, 01/20/2017 - 15:31

Alarmingly, compared to 50 peer cities, Louisville ranks 8th for highest rate of suicides.  In the first-ever Bold Moves Against Suicide Summit, the Louisville Health Advisory Board and One Love Louisville brought together thought leaders and community partners with goals to: 

•    Champion  “Zero Suicide” as a community   goal

•    Increase community responsibility of eliminating suicides and provide tools and resources to address the issue of suicide  

 •    Launch a community coalition to reduce suicide

Attendance at the November event indicates that the community is interested in further efforts focusing on suicide reduction and increasing education around the topic. Wellspring is pleased to join in these efforts. Watch for more activities in 2017.
