September is Suicide Prevention Awareness month. As part of its Suicide Prevention awareness campaign, Henrico CSB-Prevention Services is partnering with the Hispanic Community to raise awareness. As reported by the CDC, Latina teens currently have the highest rate of suicide attempts of all adolescents in the US.
Henrico CSB-Prevention services will be posting a Life-Line video in Spanish as a daily Face Book post in the month of September to thousands in the Latino Community utilizing WBTX-1380 am Hispanic radio Face Book contacts.
Additionally, in collaboration with WBTX-1380 am Hispanic radio, a Spanish translated public service announcement on suicide prevention will air every weekend during September.
