National Suicide Prevention LifeLine
The Wood County Suicide Prevention Coalition is a community of citizens from diverse backgrounds who are united in our resolve to save lives.
We pursue coordinated strategies to educate and increase awareness that suicide is a public health problem, not a private shame.
Our Coalition is committed to increased public understanding of depression, mental illness, and alcohol and drug abuse as treatable health conditions, not as signs of personal weakness. We are enemies of fear, ignorance and stigma, all of which prevent people from seeking and finding help in times of great personal distress.
