Suicide Prevention

The Suicide Prevention Center's (SPC) mission is to prevent suicide through education, awareness and support to those affected by a suicide death.  Sadly, in the U.S. over 40,000 people die by suicide each year with an estimated 1 million attempts.  It's a leading cause of death for youth aged 15-24 in Indiana, and the 10th leading cause of death overall in the U.S.  
And for every suicide death, there are an estimated six suicide loss "survivors" faced with the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one. The SPC provides information and links to local and national resources in addition to offering the following programs:   


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


After Suicide Support Group

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.  

If you are in crisis, call the National Lifeline 24/7.  


The Suicide Prevention Center does not provide direct services.

The next After Suicide Support Group is Tuesday, July 28 - all are welcome.
