The Lewis & Clark Suicide Prevention Coalition originally formed as the Suicide Prevention Workgroup as an off-shoot of the county’s Local Advisory Council on Mental Health to decrease the suicide rate among Lewis and Clark County adults, as well as the number of suicide attempts made by youth in the area.

In August 2018, the group changed its name to the Lewis & Clark Suicide Prevention Coalition to streamline prevention efforts across the county while showing the solidarity of its members toward increasing access to community education about suicide and to support interventions and policies.

The coalition meets from 3:30 – 5 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month via Zoom. Please contact us for questions or to participate.
