Suicide prevention is one of the highest priorities of Foundation 2. We strive to prevent suicide through our 24 hour telephone counseling available state wide, our Mobile Crisis Outreach program
and our support groups
for suicide survivor's
and those coping with depression or anxiety disorders
In addition, we know that teaching the public about suicide is an important part of suicide prevention. Whenever possible, we look for ways to increase awareness of suicide as a public health issue and a preventable death.
