Amber Hagelstein, MSP
SUICIDE PREVENTION TACTICS
Amber recently filled the position of Lifeline Navigator at Pinellas Emergency Mental Health Services (PEMHS). She holds a Master’s of Science in Psychology and has recently become a doctoral candidate for the degree of Doctor of Healthcare Administration.
As the Lifeline Navigator, Amber oversees the Lifeline Program, which recruits participants via the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) crisis line and PEMHS crisis line into the program after their crisis has been de-escalated. It is the intent of the Lifeline Program to better understand suicide, link persons in the community with pertinent referrals, assist in learning coping skills, and further prevent completed suicides or injuries due to self-harm -- both through the recruitment of study participants as well as community outreach. Amber will discuss the above, including vital information and statistics, during her time at the Guardian Association’s November meeting.
There will be no CEU credit this month - not enough time to allow requirements of SPGO with the business of nominating new board members taking up the majority of the time.
Our meeting has moved to Cypress Palms at 400 Lake Avenue N.E. in Largo.
Hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 with the meeting to begin at 7:00 p.m.
