Webinar on July 14 to Share Info about Suicide Prevention Hotline Number Change

The current Suicide Prevention Hotline number will be switching to 988 in mid-July; and the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation is hosting a webinar on July 14 at 1 p.m. to provide an update.

This free webinar will help Ohioans learn about the gaps that necessitated a revolution in the nation’s (and the state’s) approach to behavioral health crises, what will happen when someone calls 988 in Ohio, and how the state is using 988 as a starting point to transform its crisis care system.

Registration is FREE. Attendees can request continuing education for prevention, addiction counseling, social work, marriage and family counseling, and psychologists. For more information and to register, visit this link online.
