Thanks to our #TxSP22 sponsors, we are now offering additional learning opportunities as an extension of our Texas Suicide Prevention Symposium 2022! Together, we can ensure our communities continue to expand our suicide prevention know-how!

This is exciting news! Over the next several months, key experts will be joining us to share deeper dives into essential topics that fill critical gaps in our prevention infrastructure.

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.
