CT Public Health Alert & Call to Action for Youth Suicide

Tragically, CT has lost 7 youth to suicide thus far in 2020 with 4 deaths in October alone. The CT Suicide Advisory Board (CTSAB), in collaboration with multiple partners, has created the CT Public Health Alert and Call to Action for Youth Suicide (Español). We urge you to review it carefully, take action, and share it broadly with your youth-serving contacts. Our hope is that the Alert will increase awareness and vigilance to recognize and respond to the existing mental/emotional health needs of youth.
