Centerstone recently appointed Megan Williams as director of suicide prevention. Ms. Williams initially joined the organization as a crisis counselor, and has also served on Centerstone’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families, Metro Nashville Homeless Transition Grant, and Customer Care teams.
In her new role, Ms. Williams will oversee Centerstone’s suicide prevention efforts, including leadership of the two statewide grants that provide enhanced crisis follow-up services. Centerstone leadership cited Ms. Williams’s clinical and project management experience as one of the primary reasons for its appointment of her to the position. Centerstone is part of the Zero Suicide in Health and Behavioral Health Care initiative. Its proposition is that suicide deaths among those under care are preventable, and that zero suicides should be the goal of health systems.
Centerstone is a non-profit health care organization dedicated to delivering care that changes people’s lives. Centerstone provides mental health and addiction disorder treatment, education and support to communities in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and additionally offers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities life skills development, employment, and housing services.
