Ulster County Suicide Prevention and Awareness App Now Avialable

Martha Steuding, MHA Director of Education and Advocacy and Ulster County Executive Mike Hein.

On Wednesday November 13th representatives of the Mental Health Association in Ulster County Inc., joined with Ulster County Executive Mike Hein, County Leaders, Family of Woodstock, the Ulster County SPEAK Committee, Education Officials and others at Kingston High School to announce the release of a new smart phone app that helps users identify the warning signs of suicide and gives them options to get help.  The app, called Ulster County SPEAK, is available for free on iPhones and work is being done to make it available for Android.

The development of the app was a joint effort by the Mental Health Association, Family of Woodstock, The Ulster County SPEAK Committee, the MAC Works and the Ulster County Departments of Health and Mental Health.

This is yet another tool to raise awareness and help prevent suicide in Ulster County.
