Helping Hawley Become a Suicide Safer Community

Mental health partner agencies work diligently to promote wellness, awareness and prevention statewide. Locally, the White Earth Mental Health Mobile Crisis Program, White Earth Home Health, Minnesota Department of Health and REACH continue to partner, bringing suicide prevention and intervention trainings to Hawley community members and neighboring mental health agencies. Both safeTALK (suicide alertness for everyone) and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) were recently held at Hawley.
