Our goals and activities include:
- Raising suicide awareness and reduce stigma through community events and education
- Transforming suicide care provided in our community with an emphasis on improving accessibility and effectiveness
- Coordinating community training on suicide and other mental health needs
- Supporing SPARC Youth Voice, a group of local youth that meets regularly to raise suicide awareness, learn about mental health, and connect to mental health resources in the community
