PREVENTING SUICIDE: Coalition talks about different groups (podcast series)

Suicide reaches far.

Even in rural communities like those here in the Finger Lakes — the impact of suicide can be felt, like a ripple throughout the community. The Seneca County Suicide Prevention Coalition is a newly-formed entity working to bring awareness, and eliminate suicide completely. While there are a host of contributing factors that bring this type of issue to the forefront of every community — more are working than ever, to start by eliminating stigma around mental illness.

This month FingerLakes1.com has been featuring a podcast series, taking a look at suicide and how different groups are impacted by it. The four-part series, featured exclusively on FingerLakes1.com and FingerLakes1.TV looks at veterans, law enforcement, families, and the LGBTQ communities.
