United Health Services
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:
• 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
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.
