Judge Lerner-Wren Appointed to National Suicide Prevention Committee
Judge Ginger Lerner-Wren, who presides over Broward County’s misdemeanor mental health court, has been appointed to serve on the Executive Committee of The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. As the sole judicial representative on a national committee comprised of industry CEOs, members of congress, federal agencies, and more, Judge Lerner-Wren will help lead and advance suicide prevention awareness, and promote evidence-based strategies to improve mental health and wellness throughout our nation’s court systems.
The Action Alliance, established in 2010, is a public-private partnership advancing the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. Part of the organization’s approach is to influence systems changes and target certain vulnerable populations who are at higher risk.
"I believe this is a great opportunity to engage our nation's problem solving court judges to advance suicide prevention and education as an urgent matter of public health and therapeutic justice," said Judge Lerner-Wren.
