Greater Cincinnati Faith & Mental Health Collaborative Hope For Our Youth

The Greater Cincinnati Faith and Mental Health Collaborative “Hope for Our Youth” event is the second in an ongoing series of collaborative educational events to inform and equip Faith Leaders with relevant and effective information to best support their parishioners and communities through mental health challenges and connection to resources. This series continues in direct response to evaluation and identification by Faith Leaders of areas for continued growth and development in suicide prevention. The Butler County Suicide Prevention Coalition and the Greater Cincinnati Faith and Mental Health Collaborative are grateful for the continued good work that convenes under the umbrella of Envision Partnerships and dedicated Faith Leaders in our communities. These strong partnerships ensure effective interventions to reduce and eliminate suicide.

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.
