The Need for the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, and the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, Molly Mottram, Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation

  • 988 was created to be the national crisis line for individuals and was implemented successfully in Ohio in July 2022. This call and text line, which is staffed by trained crisis professionals, cannot only save countless lives, but can also save thousands of visits to emergency rooms by deescalating a situation where a person is experiencing a mental health crisis. In fact, recent studies show that approximately 80% of calls can be handled via 988 without the person needing emergency services. The issue, however, is the funding mechanism that should be utilized to assure competent support for 988 is currently not in existence. This session will provide a detailed history of 988 and its impact on Ohio, and the importance of integrating it into the community. Additionally, this session will provide an overview of the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation and the resources and trainings that are available to support communities,

What is Postvention? Molly Mottram, Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation

  • Every sector of a community is impacted when a person dies by suicide – with employers, schools, churches, and the general community paralyzed on how to deal with this unfathomable tragedy. By creating a post-suicide network of care, where individuals and families can find support from the moments after a suicide to long term support like mental health treatment, we can hasten their ability to begin healing. This session will cover how establishing postvention services, prioritizing post-suicide grief treatment and counseling and creating support groups can help loved ones, friends, and community members begin the long and difficult grieving process.
