Get Help, Give Help
The Texas Suicide Prevention Collaborative relies on generous contributions from community members like you to support our work. The fact is persons who are impacted by mental illness or who need support for suicide, suicide loss or a previous attempt never touch the public mental health system. Many go without treatment or support at all.
To help communities, we must build and support locally available resources for those who may be at risk of suicide – and that’s the essential work of the Collaborative. Given the size of Texas, it a challenging task, but with your support, we can do this – together.
We now accept crypto donations along with traditional monetary donations. Please help support those who need help in your community today.
