PEACE OF MIND
It’s Suicide Prevention Month, and MC HOPES (an initiative of the Monterey County Behavioral Health Department) invites everyone to get involved in suicide prevention. They are working on a Vision Zero for suicide in Monterey County. People can get involved in different ways: providing input on the MC HOPES roadmap, becoming a Coalition member or attending an upcoming meeting.
The next meeting is at 9am Tuesday, Sept. 28 via Zoom. RSVP online at bit.ly/MCHope.
