The Butler County Suicide Prevention Coalition
The Coalition seeks to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide within our community. We engage the community in suicide prevention events and trainings, 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.
Crisis Hotline Numbers
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call the Butler County Crisis Hotline (call or text)
This is available 24-hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
MakeTheConnection.net connects Veterans, their families and friends, and other supporters to mental health information, a tool for finding local mental health resources, and videos of Veterans sharing their inspiring stories of recovery. The site is free to use and accessible to everyone.
