September is Suicide Prevention Month and many of us are providing phenomenal speakers, events and activities thanks to the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (VDBHDS) proactive approach to address this serious issue.  VDBHDS has provided funding across the regions of Virginia to provide community forums, education and training to address this concern.  Nicole Taper Gore, Statewide Suicide Prevention Coordinator, gives more insight into this topic.  Please share in all of your social media outlets and if you would like to comment on this segment, please visit my “vlog” by clicking on the image below.
