OUR MISSION We work to prevent future suicides through outreach, education, and collaboration.
OUR HISTORY The Tahoe Truckee Suicide Prevention Coalition formed in 2013 out of concern for the mental health and safety of the youth in our community. The goal of the coalition was to provide education, outreach, and strategies that will mobilize and support this community and prevent future suicides. Over time we have evolved to support community members across the lifespan in a collaborative approach.
COLLABORATION Suicide prevention is a collaborative effort involving a number of community agencies over the years, including:
Nevada County Health and Human Services & Placer County Health and Human Services
