Suicide Prevention

The Brian Dagle Foundation provides evidenced based trainings, presentations and talks on suicide prevention and grief support. Ann shares her personal and inspirational story of the loss of her son Brian as she discusses the warning signs she did not see, her unimaginable loss and slow return to life without Brian.

Suicide Prevention Programs

The foundation strives to educate people on suicide prevention and promote awareness of suicide risk factors and warning signs. We provide several best practice programs on mental health and suicide prevention with collaboration from organizations such as NAMI New Hampshire, The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention and The QPR Institute.
