Throughout September, the CDP will be observing Suicide Prevention Month and has events planned to raise awareness. In addition to our existing resources on suicide prevention, in the coming weeks, look for weekly blogs on various aspects of suicide prevention.

We're also offering multiple live online training opportunities this month, including a free 90-minute webinar and a two-day training event. These are listed below and on our Upcoming Training Calendar. We hope that you will return to our site several times during the month to check out all of the content we'll be rolling out!
