The goal of the Brown County Coalition for Suicide Prevention is to promote awareness of suicide as a serious and preventable public health problem. By providing education, we aim to decrease the stigma associated with mental health and suicide.
The Brown County Coalition for Suicide Prevention was formed in 2006 in response to the alarming number of deaths by suicide in Brown County.
This dedicated group of survivors, professionals, and advocates in our community has since grown to more than 50 members and meets on a monthly basis.
Our group engages in suicide prevention strategies through grassroots efforts, which include suicide prevention training utilizing evidence-based programs like Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR); Signs of Suicide (SOS), HOPE Squad, and Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) Team.
Together, we are working towards the prevention of all suicides in Brown County and calling on the community at large to educate themselves about the warning signs of suicide and how they can help save a life.
