Suicide Prevention

The Suicide Prevention Center's (SPC) mission is to prevent suicide through education, training and community wide awareness.  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.  The Suicide Prevention Center provides: 


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 Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)
• Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program presented to area students 

Support Services for Suicide Loss Survivors

The Suicide Prevention Center has several programs for suicide loss survivors and those affected by a suicide death. 

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 usually meets on the last Tuesday of the month so check with the facilitator to confirm the meeting date and time.
