We are dedicated to suicide prevention, the promotion of resiliency, and supporting those impacted by suicide.
Suicide is a leading cause of preventable death in Utah and takes lives without regard to age, income, race, or gender. We are a public-private partnership of community members, suicide survivors, service providers, state and local government officials, researchers, and others dedicated to saving lives and advancing suicide prevention efforts in Utah.
The Utah Suicide Prevention Plan guides our work.
The Utah Suicide Prevention Coalition is dedicated to long-term suicide prevention efforts. Our goal is to reduce suicide rates in Utah by 10% by 2021 with the ultimate goal of zero suicides in Utah.
To help us reach this goal, we’ve developed the Utah Suicide Prevention Plan. We thank all those who contributed to its development. We dedicate this plan to those whose life has been impacted by suicidal thoughts or feelings and who bravely face each day and choose to have hope and continue to live. We also dedicate this plan to survivors who have lost a loved one to suicide and to those professionals, first responders, individuals, and families who continue to engage in this work.
