Suicide Prevention Across Rush County (SPARC) is a community task group dedicated to suicide prevention and awareness activities in Rush County.

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

The SPARC Fund is a part of the Healthy Community Funds of the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation.
