The Health and Human Services Department, Marin County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services is pleased to inform you that the “Suicide Prevention Community Survey” is now available by clicking on the following link:
This survey is an important component of their effort to develop a Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan that will increase service coordination and strengthen supports for community members. Their goal with this plan is to reduce suicide attempts and suicide deaths in Marin County.
To do this, they need to hear from community members like you so that they can better understand how the issue of suicide affects individuals and communities in Marin County. Just by clicking on the above link and taking 5-10 minutes to complete the survey, you will be playing an important role in supporting your community and all residents of Marin County.
If you would like to learn more about the Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan, you can visit https://www.marinhhs.org/suicide-prevention. You can also access the survey through the link above.
BHRS is working closely with the Marin County Department of Public Health and the Marin County Office of Education to better understand how suicide impacts our county and what can be done to enhance suicide prevention efforts. Through surveys, focus groups, interviews, and a community meeting scheduled for this spring, BHRS is engaging community members in the planning process. If you have questions or want to learn more about the different ways to participate, please contact Chandrika Zager, Senior Program Coordinator, (CZager@marincounty.org), 415 473 6844.
