Event Description
 The Midwest Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Summit was born in 2019 out of a strong desire to provide local suicide prevention professionals with the practical skills they need to effectively reduce suicide rates. There was also a desire to connect suicide prevention partners across borders in the Midwest region of the United States. The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation went about planning an in-person summit that focused on practical implementation, prevention success stories, and collaboration with community partners across disciplines. 
As many of us know, CONNECTEDNESS is a primary protective factor in the prevention of suicide and treatment of mental illness. When it comes to suicide prevention, connectedness is the key to standing together, sharing resources and making a real difference in our communities. That's why we want to invite you to the Midwest Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Summit being held in Columbus, Ohio, on October 17-18, 2024. Let's stand together and move forward as one and make a real impact in our communities and our respective states. 
This two-day in-person summit will focus on providers of suicide prevention across the Midwest, from coalitions and organizations dedicated to preventing suicide and promoting mental health wellness, prevention professionals, healthcare professionals, veteran-serving organizations, state and community leaders, and others dedicated to community solutions to address the public health problem of suicide and mental health. 

Workshops will be included on the following subjects
  • Adult Male Suicide & Man Therapy
  • Access to Lethal Means
  • Veterans and First Responders
  • The Crisis system & Communities of Care (Including 9-8-8)
