Governor Jeb Bush's IN THE NEWS...Friday, March 26, 2004
I joined First Lady Columba Bush and other advocates for
day on Tuesday. We stood together to raise awareness about suicide in
Florida, prevention efforts that are already underway, and the warning signs
every Floridian should recognize to help stem this heartbreaking, but
growing problem. With the input of groups across the state, we've created
the Florida Suicide Prevention Task Force, as well as a statewide strategy
to lower suicide by at least one-third by 2010. Suicide is a difficult-but
not impossible-problem to address. By working together, I believe we can
turn the tide and save lives in Florida.
