September 17, 2019 - Upholding Westchester County’s Commitment to suicide prevention, awareness and the importance of overall mental health, Westchester County Executive George Latimer, the Department of Community Mental Health (DCMH) and several community partners launched a month-long Suicide Prevention and Awareness Campaign. The month-long campaign, which includes a series of public service announcements (PSA’s), was created to help educate Westchester County residents on the appropriate ways to discuss mental health crisis in identified communities, and the resources available to them. The third PSA places a focus on Westchester County’s senior citizens and the symptoms that may signal a mental health issue, including social isolation, changes in appetite or sleep or chronic disease.
