Suicide Prevention

Marc Woods
September 10, 2020

Today on the vlog we have with us Marc Woods, Assistant Chief Nurse Executive for Behavioral Health at UK Healthcare. Marc discusses suicide prevention and emphasizes the importance of understanding your ability to have an impact on the lives of those you love. He explains that simply asking friends and family about concerning changes in their behavior is a simple start to a conversation about suicide prevention. Asking someone if they are contemplating suicide can make a difference. Connecting them to healthcare professionals can lead them to create a safety plan for when they are feeling suicidal. For more information visit the Columbia Lighthouse Project
