Challenge

Suicide in VT and the Northeast is a growing public health issue. More than 10x as many people die by suicide in Vermont annually than by homicide, and on average, one person dies by suicide every three days. Stakeholders in Vermont have taken seriously the need to expand suicide prevention efforts and applying CHL's important practices improve prevention outcomes across continuums. With the ongoing crisis of the pandemic, suicide prevention efforts are more important than ever.

Solution

The Center for Health and Learning (CHL) has the vision to serve the State of Vermont and meet each community where they are as a catalyst for inspiring optimum health for all. We focus on Mental Health Awareness, Suicide Prevention and Awareness, and Substance Use Disorder education and learning opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

CHL has delivered quality services to school and community professionals about suicide prevention. We are committed to meet the increased demand for online training created by COVID as the need for online trainings about suicide prevention becomes more pressing. CHL's support enables those who have not worked with people who are suicidal to take active roles in mental health services. The impact is a movement away from crisis intervention and towards optimal health.
