Partners in Prevention
Mercy's school suicide prevention program aims to increase the knowledge and ability of school mental health professionals to conduct suicide risk assessment and of elementary teachers to provide upstream suicide prevention and to augment our comprehensive suicide awareness and responsiveness program for youth, caregivers, and school personnel in elementary, middle, and high schools.
"Suicide prevention is needed now more than ever, and together we CAN save lives. Myths, fears, and stigma keep us from talking about suicide and effectively preventing it. I have been personally and professionally impacted by suicide, as have so many others, and I look forward to a day that that stigma no longer exists. Programs like Project PiP will help make that a reality. I am so excited to bring awareness and build connection in our community! "

If you or someone you know is suicidal, please call the national suicide prevention hotline or go to your nearest emergency room.
