Suicide Prevention Council
The Suicide Prevention Council of Washington County includes mental health providers, first responders, educators, the faith community, NAMI, government organizations, survivors of suicide loss, law enforcement and other concerned citizens.
The Council is tackling education, training, stigma and awareness, and will be looking at data to better inform suicide prevention and intervention practices in Washington County.
The vision of the Council is "Zero is possible." A growing body of research shows that we do not have to accept any suicides in our community. So we are supporting the National Suicide Prevention Strategy of eliminating suicide and its devastating effects right here in Washington County.
Interested? Join us! All are welcome. If you would like more information about the Suicide Prevention Council of Washington County contact Amy Baker at 503-846-4575. Our group meets, on average, every other month.
The Council will present the Summit of Hope on May 13, 2015. All are welcome.
