Welcome to the St. Lawrence County Suicide Awareness Coalition website!

 

The goal of the Coalition is to convey to the people of St. Lawrence County, New York, that suicide is a critical public health issue for which there are prevention strategies, intervention techniques, and postvention assistance; all of which are available in the county.

We are working to achieve this goal by:

  • Maintaining a vital Coalition and recruiting new, active members;
  • Sponsoring  trainings, including;
    • ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)
    • Safe Talk
    • QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer)
  • Providing web resources
  • Distributing educational materials throughout the community
  • Promoting existing services
