5B Suicide Prevention Alliance Welcomes You

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

At 5B Suicide Prevention Alliance, we focus our efforts on reducing stigma, creating common language, connecting people to helping resources, and ultimately ending suicides in our community. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.

 

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, the medical community, public and private schools, law enforcement the faith community, social service agencies, parents, and loved ones.  Contact us for more information.

 

Bringing Change

Our strategy is to build an understanding of the many ways that suicide impacts a community. We will raise up the partners in our community that are already working on projects that support suicide prevention. We will implement awareness campaigns and educational events that share the facts, figures, stories, and the ripple effects of suicide in our community

Empowering you with Information

Reinforcing our Commitment

One Step at a Time

 

“We are at a crossroads when it comes to how our society addresses mental health. We know that one in five of our citizens has a diagnosable mental health condition, and that more Americans are expected to die this year by suicide than in car accidents. While many of us are comfortable acknowledging publicly our physical suffering, for which we almost always seek help, many more of us privately experience mental suffering, for which we almost never reach out.” (October 2016 changedirection.org)

What They’re Saying

 

Mary Williams

Erin, Just wanted to send you and Laurie a big thank you for the Know the 5 Signs training you did for the YMCA  Leadership Team. This is such an important issue in our community and opening the lines of communication on this topic is so vital. Our team really felt like the training you conducted was both meaningful and useful. 

Having open dialog about this issue helps us recognize our colleges and members that might be struggling with their mental health and assists us in being careful in our approach as we all strive to take care of ourselves and our fellow community members.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this training to other community businesses and nonprofits.

Thank you
