This week Josh Durso sits down with Emilie Sisson, of the Finger Lakes Rural Health Network discussing her work raising awareness and community education in rural parts of the region. Specifically, Sisson walks listeners through a unique training opportunity to gain skills and knowledge that is crucial given the realities associated with suicide prevention and awareness in the Finger Lakes. The Centers for Disease Control identified suicide as a leading cause of death and an issue of extreme importance in a recent report, and since those findings were published – communities like Seneca, Yates, and Schuyler have been working overtime to address them given the difficulty of receiving state or federal funds to fight issues like substance use disorders or mental health awareness.
