In the February session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karyn Brownson discusses her experience developing the Washington State Suicide Prevention Plan with more than 250 stakeholders, whose input led to a document many communities find useful and relevant.

This one-hour webinar will cover the scope of suicide as a public health problem in Washington, the state’s model of stakeholder engagement, and lessons that may enhance projects of similar scope in other states.
