‘What’s Up Doc’ program addresses suicide prevention

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

On Tuesday, Assets In Action presents its next installment of “What’s Up Doc?” from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at White Rock Town Hall.
The program, which has brought the health professionals from the Los Alamos Children’s Clinic to educate the community in family-friendly venues, has added other professionals to the fold as they delve into the tough topic of striving for a health community.
Tuesday’s session will include a presentation from the New Mexico Suicide Prevention Coalition, to highlight some warning signs for parents and caregivers of youth.
NMSPC Director Laura Harrison, knows the topic can be tough for many, “Suicide prevention sounds scary, but it’s really simple. It’s about knowing the warning signs of suicide, and then knowing what to do with that info. That’s what we teach on a basic level.”
Harrison was impacted at the age of 19, after a suicide death of a friend. “I didn’t want other teens to go through what I had,” Harrison said.
The Assets program would like the gathering to be multi-purpose and reflect on current needs and long-range strategies to build resilience and enhance community.
