“We seek with these workshops to outline strategies for the prevention and intervention of violence to reduce the number of suicide cases in the Yucatan peninsula,” she said.
Hernández Ruiz highlighted that this event took place within the framework of the World Day for Suicide Prevention, and addressed some aspects on the problem of violence and suicide in Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche.
