Louis Graham

Louis Graham, assistant professor of community health education, spoke to the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Public Health Newswire on the topic of suicide prevention as part of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Prevention Week.

Held this year from May 18-24, National Prevention Week seeks to increase public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues.

Graham discussed the “link between protecting ‘the most marginalized people’ and suicide prevention,” which was one of the daily themes featured as part of National Prevention Week.

A member of the APHA’s LGBT Caucus, Mental Health Section and the HIV-AIDS Section, Graham also discussed promotion of mental health in a podcast that can be found at APHA online.
