Guide Offers Help for a Loved One Who Is Suicidal

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has released a new guide called Helping Your Loved One Who is Suicidal: A Guide for Family and Friends.  

This guide is designed to help families who have a loved one who is suicidal or has made a suicide attempt. It provides information on understanding suicide, warning signs and action steps to take, and ways to prevent future attempts and keep a loved one safe.

Last year, to combat COVID-19, Gov. Newsom signed Assembly Bill 2537 (Rodriguez), which required all acute care hospitals to create and maintain a supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) equal to three months of normal consumption. As the phrase “normal consumption” was undefined in the bill, this created significant confusion for hospitals.
