More items that have been gathered to be auctioned off for the West Virginia chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP WV).
The auction will be at 3:30pm in Panel Room 1.
The AFSP will be taking part in State Capitol Day Wednesday February 15th. Each year, State Capitol Day events bring advocates together with state and local public officials to share information and urge that suicide prevention be made a priority. Advocates have the opportunity to meet with their legislators and speak about legislative and policy issues that need support. Because of these personal connections between advocates and lawmakers, state bills have been enacted that now ban the practice of conversion therapy, require suicide prevention policies and personnel training in K-12 schools, increase suicide prevention on college and university campuses, require insurance plans to treat mental health and physical health equally, and create statewide suicide prevention offices and task forces.
