Messaging is a key component of suicide prevention efforts, and the way police agencies talk about suicide can potentially encourage at-risk officers to seek help. During this webinar, Michael Costigan, BJA Acting Director; Chief John W. Morrissey, retired from the Kenosha, Wisconsin Police Department; and Colleen Carr, Director and Secretariat for The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, EDC, will discuss effective strategies for executive leaders and public information officers to promote positive messaging when discussing suicide and suicide prevention within their police agency.
