Suicide Prevention

Suicide touches the lives of many Vermonters. Our intentional self-harm and death by suicide rates are significantly higher than the United States rates. Find help, learn about warning, signs, risk and protective factors. Read about what Vermont is doing to prevent suicide.

 

Stay Safe in a Flood

Vermont’s rivers, streams and lakes can be harmful to our health and safety when they flood. Learn about the steps you can take to stay safe before, during and after a flood.


Flood Watch means a flood is possible in your area.
Flood Warning means a flood is about to happen or is happening in your area.

Road User Safety

We're all road users –  when we are driving, walking, cycling, passengers in a vehicle, and when using other transport. The Road User Safety program aims to reduce injury and deaths, and make Vermont roads safer for all of us.

Prevent Falls

Many Vermonters are affected by falls at some point in their life. People who are 65 years and older are increasingly at risk of falling, and therefore potentially injury. As we age, we are more likely to be injured in a fall.

Injury Data

Injury prevention is part of a comprehensive approach to enhancing health and quality of life for all Vermonters. Vermont's Injury Prevention Program uses data to determine activities while improving our understanding of the causes of injury, populations that are most at risk, and trends in a particular type of injury; and assessing the impact of prevention programs.
