Today we are joined by Virginia “Ginny” Stoffel and Lisa Mahaffey. Ginny and Lisa were instrumental in the 988 Nationwide mental health crisis and suicide prevention program. We discuss the 988 Suicide and Crisis lifeline, it's connection to occupational therapy, and principles and implications of 988 for occupational therapy practitioners across settings.
