This year, World Suicide Prevention Day is set for September 10, and to help raise awareness of this important topic, Menninger will hold a Facebook Live conversation at 1 pm CT at www.facebook.com/MenningerClinic.
Cory Walker, DO, pictured, director of the Comprehensive Psychiatric Assessment Service, and former Houston TV medical reporter Christi Myers will discuss why suicide awareness is so important; risk factors and warning signs; and how you can help prevent a tragic death by suicide.
They will answer questions from Facebook followers with the goal of helping people find help for themselves or loved ones, and they will also explain how effective treatment can help individuals resume a life worth living.
To participate in this Facebook Live event, visit The Menninger Clinic’s Facebook Page from 1 to 1:45 pm CT, Monday, September 10. Or, view it later at your convenience to learn from this special forum.
