In this edition of CAHS Connects, we address the issue of suicide, which has become pervasive in America and does not discriminate by age, race, gender, or class. Click here to read the news.

Capital Area Human Services (CAHS) is working to help reverse this trend through education, prevention, intervention and other resources, says Interim Executive Director Jan Laughinghouse, PhD, LCSW-BACS.
