Caltrain, mental health officials introduce suicide prevention program 

Caltrain officials and mental health professionals will gather Monday to introduce the transit agency’s new suicide prevention program.

In recognition of September being rail-safety month, Caltrain will unveil a series of new suicide prevention signs along a 10-mile corridor from Menlo Park to Mountain View. The signs, developed with help from mental health experts, will list the telephone number for the Youth and Family Enrichment Services Crisis Intervention Center.

Despite repeated attempts at prevention, the commuter rail line is the frequent site of suicides.

Monday’s unveiling of the new signs will take place at 10 a.m. at the agency’s Mountain View Station.
