NAMI NH has received national and international acclaim for its Connect Suicide Prevention Program. Connect is designated as a National Best Practice training program in suicide prevention, intervention and response to a suicide death. By working with and training key service providers and community members, Connect promotes a community based approach to early recognition of mental illness and improved access to care. When people are educated about the risks and warning signs of suicide and ways to prevent it, lives can be saved!

We invite you to visit our Connect Suicide Prevention website. Here you can learn about the programs that NAMI NH has put in place to help prevent suicide. If you or someone you know is at risk for suicide, or has lost someone to suicide, the Get Help section will provide you with resources.
