PARIS – Jeff Clark, 911 public education coordinator, and Tamara Corson, 911 public education assistant at Oxford County Regional Communications Center, are offering suicide prevention programs to adult groups.

The 60- to 90-minute presentations are free.

Clark and Corson recently received training in suicide prevention at Medical Care Development in Augusta. The training provides information on warning signs of suicidal behavior and teaches how to assist with getting help for suicidal people.

The Maine Youth Suicide Prevention Program is working to reduce the incidence of suicide behavior among Maine youths ages 10-24 and to improve youth access to appropriate prevention and intervention services.

Anyone interested in learning more about suicide prevention may contact Clark or Corson at the communications center at (207) 743-9554.
