The Navy & Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW) Department and the Navy Suicide Prevention Branch (OPNAV N171) will be hosting a webinar on suicide prevention on 30 August 2016 at 1200 EST. This webinar, entitled “Every Sailor, Every Day Starts with YOU: Understanding Evidence-Based Intervention Tools for Sailors at Risk of Suicide,” will focus on the many ways that local advocates can work together to promote a supportive command climate that integrates tools for physical and psychological health. Speakers will foster understanding of Navy’s evidence-based efforts in prevention and intervention, and focus on the following objectives:
- Discuss the ways in which local advocates and program managers can be leaders in suicide prevention.
- Promote understanding and application of Navy’s evidence-based prevention and intervention resources.
- Empower culture change through collaboration, education, and action.
Navy Suicide Prevention Branch encourages all suicide prevention coordinators (SPCs) and personnel who have frequent contact with at-risk Sailors to attend.
