Clerk of Court, Melissa R. Henry, invited NAMI St. Tammany Executive Director, Nick Richard, and St. Tammany Parish Coroner, Dr. Charles Preston, to view the Positivity Boards that were promoted during September, National Suicide Prevention Month. The boards asked passers-by to leave a positive note of encouragement for someone in need, or to take a word of encouragement, if needed.

If you or someone you know is in crisis – whether they are considering suicide or not – please call the toll-free National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK(8255) to speak with a trained crisis counselor 24/7.
