The Clearfield – Jefferson Suicide Prevention Team is dedicated to achieve our Mission to reduce the occurrence of suicide within our two county areas. The Team wants to achieve our Mission by promoting awareness and prevention by offering programs to the community at large. We want to be able to provide prevention, intervention, and postvention trainings to any and all groups from the faith based community to the business community. The Team wants to make suicide a topic we can freely talk about and not be in fear of. We want everyone to learn how to identify the person who may be suicidal and then know what to say to get them the help they so desperately need. Your participation adds strength to our efforts to advocate for solutions and combat stigma.
The Suicide Prevention Team is comprised of local community providers and individuals like you who are invested in accomplishing our Mission. If you would like to join our team, we encourage you to become involved by attending our meetings, which are always posted on our Home Page.
Clearfield Jefferson Suicide Prevention Team, Inc. is a non-profit organization.
All donations will help us continue education programs and to advocate for people with mental illnesses and their families.
