Our Story

For nearly 20 years NAMI New Hampshire has been providing suicide prevention training through The Connect Program (formerly FRAMEWORKS). in 2018 this training was adapted as a series of web-based modules.

The Connect Program is a comprehensive training built upon a public health, socio-ecological approach that looks at the individual, family, community and society.  While a suicide is the act of an individual, it occurs in the context of and impacts that person’s relationships, community, and the larger society and culture.

In-person training is still available. More information on how to schedule a live training can be found at TheConnectProgram.org
