Event description

Description

Please join the Inpatient Psychiatry Department and LiveWell/WorkWell at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center on a walk to prevent suicide on Wednesday, September 7 between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. The walk is one-mile long and starts outside the Cafeteria on level 2 by the "blue lady" sculpture.

The suicide rate has been rising over the past decade and is now the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. Mood disorders are the top risk factor for suicide, but alcohol and drug abuse, even without depression, come in a close second.

Suicide can be prevented by receiving treatment using therapy and/or medications. Only half of all Americans experiencing an episode of major depression receive treatment, and only 11% of Americans experiencing alcoholism and/or drug addiction receive treatment.

Please join us to increase awareness and prevent suicide.
