The 5B Suicide Prevention Alliance, in collaboration with others, builds a resilient county through increasing awareness, understanding, and action around suicide prevention.
We focus on educating our community about knowing and understanding the signs of emotional distress while promoting and emphasizing the importance of every day healthy habits.
The 5B Suicide Prevention Alliance, comprised of Blaine County citizens and organizations, is working to prevent suicide and educate our community about mental health. We bring together the voices of mental health advocates and providers, medical community, public and private schools, law enforcement, faith community, social service agencies, parents, and community members. Contact us for more information.
Our strategy is to prevent suidcie in our community by giving presentations on "The Know Five Signs" and "Healthy Habits," from the international organization The Campaign to Change Direction's. These presentations create common community language, and help people recognize the signs of emotional distress in someone, or themselves, connect people to helping resources, and remind people the importance of Healthy Habits of emotional well-being,
To date, we have provided free education to thousands of community members and partners, students, buisinesses and churches. If you or your organization would like to schedule a free presentation, please contact us!
"The goal of the Campaign to Change Direction [our educational intiative] is to change the culture of mental health so that all of those in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign encourages everyone to pay attention to their emotional wellbeing – and it reminds us that our emotional well-being is just as important as our physical well-being. We provide a tool, the Five Signs of Emotional Suffering and the Healthy Habits of Emotional Wellbeing, so that we all have a common language to identify when someone is suffering and how we can stay emotionally healthy."
