Community members and stakeholders gathered at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center on Thursday, Jan. 30, to hear the Annual Report Out for the Johnson County Suicide Prevention Coalition. The event featured presentations from SPC Leadership Team members, Johnson County Medical Examiner Dr. Diane Peterson and Johnson County Department of Health and Environment Epidemiologist Elizabeth Holzschuh. Here are the highlights:
Although the event had a celebratory tone for the SPC’s successes, it also carried a sense of purpose for the future. Membership Coordinator Rennie Shuler-McKinney stated in her presentation, “While we celebrate a 20% decrease in suicides in 2019, we still must pause and recognize that 81 people died by suicide in 2019 in our county. We still have significant work to do.”
