About the Coalition

"Everyone Plays a Role in Suicide Prevention"

Mission

We are dedicated to suicide prevention, resiliency promotion, and supporting those impacted by suicide.

Suicide is a leading cause of preventable death in Utah and takes lives without regard to age, income, race, or gender. We are a public-private partnership of community members, suicide survivors, service providers, researchers, and others dedicated to saving lives and advancing suicide prevention efforts in Utah. The coalition has four workgroups: community awareness, training & education, epidemiology, and policy.

Utah Suicide Prevention Plan

The plan was developed by the Utah Suicide Prevention Coalition. Many thanks to all those who contributed to this process for all the citizens of Utah. We dedicate this plan to those whose life has been impacted by suicidal thoughts or feelings and who bravely face each day and choose to hope and continue to live. We also dedicate this plan to survivors who have lost a loved one to suicide and to those professionals, first responders, individuals and families who continue to engage in this work of Suicide Prevention.
