TSPN E-Newsletter

Effective as of April 2017, TSPN’s three monthly and bimonthly newsletters were consolidated into a single electronic newsletter, scheduled for publication on the first of each month.

The change in format is intended to reduce TSPN paper and printing costs, as well as the labor involved with research, design, and production. The move is also in keeping with the emerging trend of web-based newsletters within the non-profit sector.

Previous editions of the TSPN Call to Action are archived here for the benefit of our readers.

The November 2017 TSPN Call to Action is available at http://conta.cc/2yTlk3c.

Established in 2005, the TSPN Call to Action has provided members of TSPN and the general public with monthly updates on TSPN projects as well as the suicide prevention movement in Tennessee and beyond.

Issues of the newsletter typically feature reports on regional events and conferences, developments on the national scene relevant to suicide prevention and mental health, introductions to newly available suicide prevention resources, and the latest research on suicide and mental illness.

The TSPN Call to Action is posted on the TSPN website on or around the first day of each month. New editions are announced each month via Constant Contact to our members across the state.

Newsletters from 2009, 2010, and 2011 are available on separate pages.  For editions prior to 2009, please contact the TSPN central office at [email protected].
