The Wayne County Suicide Prevention Coalition works together to reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts in Wayne County in partnership with the community.
- Reduce factors that increase the risk of suicide
- Increase awareness in order to reduce stigma and encourage individuals to seek help and encourage treatment for depression and suicide risk.
The Coalition has been in existence since 2017, meets quarterly, and is made up of community stakeholders from different human service agencies, law enforcement, mental health and substance abuse providers, faith-based and community service organizations, schools and universities, as well as other interested individuals. We are always welcoming new members to help us meet our mission.
