The Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) was directed by the Legislature to draft a new statewide strategic suicide prevention plan.
The Commission is requesting public input on the first draft, specifically the Strategic Aims, Goals, and Action section of the plan. This is a draft. The final version of the plan will be formatted and copy edited.
The Commission’s Suicide Prevention Subcommittee will be holding a series of meetings across the state to consider revisions to the draft plan. Here’s what you need to know:
- There are award categories for youth, for advocates for youth, and for professionals. Read the descriptions to find the category that best fits your nominee. Rockstar Awards can be given posthumously. Self-nominating is encouraged!
- Rockstar Award recipients do not need to be Youth MOVE members. Current members of the Youth MOVE National Board of Directors and National Leadership Team are not eligible, neither are previous Rockstar Award recipients.
- The deadline to nominate is Wednesday, July 31, at 11:59 p.m. PDT
