Suicide Prevention

 The Suicide Prevention Center's (SPC) mission is to raise awareness of education and training on suicide prevention, and offering free support services to those affected by a suicide death.  In the U.S. we lose over 38,000 people to suicide each year.  It's a leading cause of death for youth aged 15-24.  There are an estimated 1 million attempts each year; and for every suicide death, there are six suicide loss survivors faced with the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one.  The SPC offers:   

Educational Trainings

• General suicide prevention presentations tailored to the audience with relevant and current information 

• Nationally recognized trainings including Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and QPR designed to teach adults life saving skills 
• Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention program delivered to area middle and high schools by certified trainers 

Support Services for Suicide Loss Survivors

Grieving a suicide loss? You are not alone. The After Suicide Support Group is a place to connect and share with others who are coping with the sudden loss of a loved one.  The group meets once a month at United Health Services.  Click on the Programs link for more information. 

Local Outreach to Survivors of a Suicide Loss
The local outreach team is available to meet with survivors in the days and weeks following the death of a loved one to suicide to provide support and information on local resources.  Call 400-9111 or 247-6047 ext. 120 to learn more about this unique program.
