Suicide Prevention Coalition of Rockland

The Rockland County Suicide Prevention Coalition began in 2016 with a mission to reduce the incidence of suicide through the development and implementation of suicide Prevention, Intervention and Postvention programs; increased peer to peer engagement; and enhanced public awareness of behavioral health needs and community-wide resources.

We are always looking for new members to join the Coalition and to increase our membership's diversity so we welcome you to join us or to refer someone who may be interested in the Coalition.
