LMSPC Annual Professional Development Day

LMPSC is dedicated to raising awareness and increasing knowledge of suicide prevention and intervention in the community.

LMSPC has been active in the community raising awareness and increasing knowledge and skills to respond to suicide risk. Based upon feedback from the community LMSPC will now be hosting an annual professional development day.

Each year our professional development day will address an issue of importance to the community related to suicide. Attendees will also have an opportunity to network and learn more about community programs and services.

If you have a topic of interest that you would like LMSPC to consider for future PD Days please email us at

LMSPC is a not-for-profit that relies on the financial support of the community. All proceeds from the event will support ongoing LMSPC activities.
