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

It's estimated that when a person dies by suicide, there are six survivors.  The SPC has several programs to provide support and resources to 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 meets the last Tuesday of the month. 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.  Home visits can be arranged.  Call 574-400-9111 or 74-247-6047 ext. 120.  

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, Aug 25.
