Public invited to Suicide Prevention Coalition meeting

(Submitted by Suicide Prevention Coalition)

The public is invited to attend the next meeting of the Suicide Prevention Coalition on Feb. 28, 1:30 p.m., at the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board, 745 Haskins Road in Bowling Green.

The Wood County Suicide Prevention Coalition is a community of citizens from diverse backgrounds who are united in our resolve to save lives. We pursue coordinated strategies to educate and increase awareness that suicide is a public health problem, not a private shame.

Our Coalition is committed to increased public understanding of depression, mental illness, and alcohol and drug abuse as treatable health conditions, not as signs of personal weakness.

All are welcome to come.
