Finding Common Ground—Suicide Prevention Through Voluntary 'Do-Not-Sell List'

Wednesday, feb 14, 8 – 9 a.m. | Online

Join us to hear Morissa Henn, Deputy Commissioner at the NH Department of Health and Human Services, reflect on her time in Utah working with a coalition of policymakers, gun rights advocates, and public health leaders to make Utah one of the first states to offer this kind of voluntary ‘do-not-sell list’— in an effort to help prevent suicide.
