Suicide Prevention Events

In 2018, Merced County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services issued a Proclamation for Suicide Prevention Week (see below), and coordinated week long events at various sites throughout the county to provide outreach and education about suicide prevention.

The department continued Suicide Prevention Month efforts, in September, by hosting two screenings of The S Word, a documentary that shatters the silence surrounding suicide.
