Jefferson County Suicide Prevention Network

 

Needs have risen in Jefferson County surrounding Suicide response, recovery and prevention.  Jefferson County Health Network has come along side providers, school districts and emergency responders to facilitate initiatives to increase behavioral health awareness and suicide prevention.

Together through education and support we can reach individuals who are at risk as well as those who love and care for them. 

Goals and objectives of the Jefferson County Suicide Prevention Network include client friendly resources, collaborative responses to county district suicides and community education.  We seek to achieve these objectives through organizing and promoting regular regional activities, providing suicide prevention and crisis intervention training to community organizations, and conducting postvention sessions for schools and organizations after suicides occur.
