Brown Bag: The Issue of Suicide in Wallowa County
June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Due in part to the Covid Pandemic, suicide rates across the country have surged over the past three years. Wallowa County is not immune to this national problem, and the Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness is the focal point for dealing with suicide locally. Center Director Chantay Jett and the Center’s clinical director, Mollie Cudmore, will address the issue. This event will be in person as well as virtual.
Chantay Jett grew up in Wallowa County, went away to gain degrees in business and psychology, and worked with children in an inpatient psychiatric unit at Children’s Hospital in Seattle. She returned to the county and picked up her mental health career, becoming Director of the Center for Wellness in 2015. Chantay and husband Lem have two teenaged children.
Mollie Cudmore is a licensed clinical social worker, and the new clinical director at the Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness. Mollie earned a B.A. degree in psychology from the University of Oregon and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Montana. She has worked in the mental health field since 2001, and came to Wallowa County from Bethel, Alaska, seven years ago. Mollie focuses on challenges in loss, including divorce, death, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and transitional changes.
The Brown Bag presentation will address the rising tide of suicides, and talk about seeing early signs of potential suicide and finding help.
