#MacroSW Twitter Chat: Suicide Prevention

Tonight at 9PM (EST) #MacroSW Chat returns to Twitter. The chat will be moderated by @MSWatUSC.

The International Association of Suicide Prevention External link (IASP) announced that this year’s theme for World Suicide Prevention Day is “A World Connected,” which will serve as the foundation for our discussion this week. We will use the #MacroSW chat as a venue to share campaigns, resources, and articles on the subject of suicide prevention. Additionally, the chat will provide a space to share ideas and best practices for increasing connectedness between community members and vital mental health services, and ways to better collaborate between individual advocates and organizations around the world.

To find out more about the discussion visit the USC School of Social Work blog here.
