The members of the Suicide Prevention Work-group have recently received training in Suicide Prevention and are developing strategies to raise awareness throughout the communities of Chester, Deep River, and Essex that suicide can be prevented.

The group has received funding through the Greater Valley Substance Abuse Action Council and will promote the campaign, “1 Word, 1 Voice, 1 Life.  Be the 1 to start the conversation.”  For more information, please go to preventsuicidect.org.
