MHA Rockland Launches Suicide Prevention Task Force

With support from the NYS Office of Mental Health, MHA Rockland has initiated a multi-agency task force dedicated to reducing the risk of suicide in Rockland County.

The Rockland County Suicide Prevention Task Force is a multi-disciplinary “think tank”
consisting of hospitals, schools, social service agencies, self-help organizations, and
governmental departments that have come together to address suicide prevention. Spearheaded by the Mental Health Association of Rockland County, the Suicide Prevention Task Force will:

  • host trainings on how to ask someone about suicidal thinking and respond as needed
  • produce a brochure for people who are concerned for loved one
  • launch a webpage with suicide prevention strategies and links to other resources
