A suicide prevention consultant is impressed with the support services available for families in the county.

Cecilia Marie-Flynn with the Ontario Centre for Mental Health says it’s great there are organizations supporting youth mental health.

Marie-Flynn says having community services in place is a great place to start.

Marie-Flynn was in town for a youth suicide prevention forum last week and says Haliburton is one of the most engaged regions she has seen in Ontario.

The forum was put on by Point in Time, which offers support for families who have youth dealing with mental health issues.
