The Butler County Suicide Prevention Coalition

Learn the Warning Signs & Prevent Suicide Today!

What Does the Butler County Suicide Prevention Coalition Do?

The Coalition seeks to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide within our community. We engage the community in suicide prevention events and training, increasing the number of people in our county to recognize warning signs of a mental health crisis, and enabling them to respond. The Coalition aligns with the vision of Ohio’s suicide prevention plan to reduce the number of suicides every year until not one life is lost.
