2022: LAYING THE FOUNDATION
The St. Louis Regional Suicide Prevention Coalition theme/focus for 2022 is: Laying the Foundation. The Coalition continues to emphasize building its infrastructure and knowledge base for suicide prevention in the metropolitan region (including counties in Missouri and Illinois), since its mission and vision were established in 2019.
Individuals can get involved in the Coalition’s efforts through the following 2022 initiatives:
1. 2022 Speaker Series, overseen by the Speaker Series Committee and assembling presenters for this year’s educational seminars.
2. Community Needs Assessment, whose committee is focused on identifying key needs to direct Coalition suicide prevention priorities in 2023.
3. Membership & Financial, which is developing a membership registration and participation model, as well as financial protocols, to sustain Coalition efforts.
4. Steering Committee, whose leader-level members guide these diverse efforts and collaboration among Coalition members.
Other ways to get involved include telling people about the Coalition and making a donation toward Coalition programs. Click here for the donation form, hosted by Provident. Please note under “Additional Comments” your donation is for the St. Louis Regional Suicide Prevention Coalition.
