The Pennsylvania Adult/Older Adult Suicide Prevention Coalition (PAOASPC) and the Pennsylvania Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative (PAYSPI) have merged to form a new organization called Prevent Suicide PA. Prevent Suicide PA will address suicide prevention across the life span. The organization’s goal is to prevent suicide in Pennsylvania through education, training, awareness, reducing stigma, and involving those with lived experience (Loss and Attempt Survivors). Prevent Suicide PA’s new website (www.PreventSuicidePA.org) was launched on September 10, 2017, World Suicide Prevention Day. Check it out! https://www.preventsuicidepa.org/
Prevent Suicide PA will hold it’s first “Suicide Awareness Day” at the State Capitol on Monday, October 16th from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM. Please join Prevent Suicide PA and help to bring suicide prevention and mental wellness into the spotlight. Speakers will include several legislators, mental health professionals, and attempt and loss Survivors (representing lived experience from all age groups). Display tables will provide organizations with an opportunity to share suicide prevention materials.
