Suicide Prevention Services

$25,000

Through education, early identification, early treatment and group support, Suicide Prevention Services (SPS) takes an innovative and new approach to the critical issue of youth suicide prevention. This Dunham Fund grant will greatly enhance programs and services for community youth with expanded depression screenings, individual and family counseling, education training and presentations, crisis intervention and local and national hotlines.

SPS seeks to stop suicide before a critical situation arrives, rather than react in the wake of a suicide attempt. Suicide is preventable; identifying the warning signs early through comprehensive services makes a difference and can save many lives.
