Partners for Suicide Prevention (P4SP)
Suicide Prevention Coalitions have emerged as a valuable resource in addressing suicide prevention throughout New York State. In 2016, Monroe County embarked on a needs assessment to determine interest and role for a local suicide prevention coalition. In 2019, Partners for Suicide Prevention became a program under the umbrella of NAMI Rochester.
With support from the Suicide Prevention Center of NY, a wide variety of local stakeholders determined the importance of establishing Partners for Suicide Prevention in order to:
- Address suicide prevention across the lifespan and diverse populations;
- Promote awareness of suicide as a public health concern;
- Be a centralized hub of resources that exist throughout Monroe County
- Make meaningful use of data.
Partners for Suicide Prevention is a community coalition that promotes awareness and use of resources for all people of Monroe County to build hope and resilience.
We envision a community where individuals choose to use skills and resources as an alternative to suicide.
