Prevention. Intervention. Postvention.
We exist to be proactive in the fight to end suicide by providing assistance and networking throughout the continuum of prevention, intervention, and postvention.
We will undertake the challenge of addressing this problem with culture at large: medical facilities, mental health organizations, educational institutions, governmental agencies, faith-based groups, families, and individuals. We will accomplish this with partners who share this vision and passion to help to end these preventable deaths and the striking pain they leave behind. As a team with many specialized partners, we can work to make a positive difference.
We will work to meet these goals toward the end of ending suicide. This will succeed when we operate as a team with other progressive leaders, teams, organizations, agencies, and volunteers whose same cause is this: ending suicide.
This website provides information that may be useful in identifying and intervening in potential incidences of suicide. It is intended for educational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional diagnosis and treatment of medical or psychiatric disorders. The user should keep in mind that people in a suicidal crisis, more often than not, need the services of professional mental health personnel.
When in doubt, always refer a person to a professional for further evaluation!
