Ruth Russell trains to add a new suicide-prevention component to the NAMI Athens toolkit.

Ruth Russell, who regularly teaches our NAMI Athens’ Family to Family Course, has volunteered to be trained by NAMI Ohio’s Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation in the latest techniques of suicide prevention. To get a sense of the recent huge increase in suicides in Ohio – particularly SE Ohio – listen to Tony Coder, the Executive Director of NAMI Ohio’s Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, at http://namiathensohio.org/radio-program/suicide/ . Also, attend his NAMI Lecture at the County Library, 30 Home Street, at 6:30 PM on October 24th. All of us at NAMI Athens thank Ruth and Tony for adding suicide prevention to our NAMI toolkit.
