VT Suicide Prevention Day at the State House

February 13 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

Join us for VT Suicide Prevention Day at the State House on February 13th from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

A long time in the making, we have a chance this session to ask the legislature to support a set of specific recommendations developed by AHS with funding targets to implement suicide prevention strategies in Vermont.

We will be advocating for legislative approval and support of the strategies and funding recommendations.

Who Should Attend?
Vermont Suicide Prevention Coalition members, AFSP Advocates and other stakeholders in suicide prevention in Vermont are invited to attend all or part of the day.
