Erin Goodman
Zero Suicide Program

Wood River Health Services has expanded its mental health care service, adding certified peer recovery specialist Erin Goodman to its staff.

Goodman and former Westerly Hospital physician Robert Harrison, director of the Washington County Zero Suicide Program, are funded by the federal Substance Abuse Mental Health Administration initiative, which allocates $400,000 per year for five years to Washington County suicide prevention programs. The grant is the only one of its kind to have been awarded in the New England region.
