🎵🎵All you need is love. 🎵🎵 Or at least that is what the Beatles told us. Yet, they didn’t quite make it clear that there are times that it can take a lot of work to keep the love alive and keep a relationship together.

Current Initiatives

The Missouri Department of Mental Health has undertaken two initiatives aimed at improving the mental health of the state's residents. The Suicide Prevention Program is designed to better inform the public about underlying issues that cause suicidal ideation, such as low self-esteem, family troubles, and bullying. The initiative also outlines steps that citizens can take to help reduce the occurrence of suicide, including reducing the stigma associated with seeking mental health treatment.4 The state's Trauma Initiative helps local mental health providers devise plans to better serve individuals who have experienced abuse, neglect, exploitation, or other forms of suffering. The goal of the initiative is to improve services to trauma victims in order to help them effectively overcome the life events that caused their suffering. Without effective treatment, continued distress is likely, including ongoing mental health issues, aggressive behaviors, and suicidal thoughts.5
