The Tahoe Truckee Suicide Prevention Coalition is proud to have joined the Know Overdose Campaign and participate throughout 2023. During the last calendar year, the Know Overdose Nevada County training and education team provided 99 opioid overdose prevention and Narcan trainings to 2,308 Nevada County residents. Because it takes an entire community to prevent overdose deaths, we trained everyone: non-profits, government agencies, schools, social and civic clubs, businesses, bars, individuals, restaurants, service providers and more.
If you or your organization haven’t been trained, reach out to KnowOverdoseNC@gmail.com to schedule your training.

Do you know or work with someone in Truckee-Tahoe who is living in a vehicle, homeless, or is couch surfing/only partially housed? The Annual Point-in-Time Count for Tahoe Truckee is this week. They need to know who was unhoused on the night of Tuesday, January 23rd.
If you know someone who is undershoused, please ask them to call 530-807-7792 to participate in a short, confidential survey, or stop in North Tahoe-Truckee Homeless Services' Respite Day Center at 10069 Church Street (Tuesday-Friday, 1:00-5:00 p.m.). They'll receive a gift card for their time.
The results of the count can help NTTHS and local agencies obtain needed funding to help our unhoused neighbors.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is an 8-week experiential course that includes meditation, mindfulness, and movement practices. These practices support you in developing your inner resources for managing stress, regulating emotions and cultivating resilience. MBSR has been researched for over 40 years and outcomes include a decrease in symptoms in physical and psychological stress-related conditions such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress, and hypertension. Most importantly, these practices nurture a capacity for greater self-compassion, awareness, and appreciation of oneself.
The Spectrum Project and Whats Up Wellness are offering a community support group beginning 1/24/24 for Parents and Caregivers of LGBTQIA youth in Nevada County, facilitated by community members and mental health professionals.

Help Us Measure Our Community’s Health and Wellbeing
We don't know what we don't know. Help us fill in our information gaps by filling out this quick and simple survey about quality of life and health. You can ensure that more neighbors, friends, and family members who live in North Tahoe-Truckee receive the support they need.
Surveys like this tell us if we should focus on increasing the number of healthcare providers, add a new language liaison in a community, work harder to reduce stigma, and so much more... Your insights are invaluable.
This survey will measure quality of life, community engagement, and behavioral health needs. Your participation will help us know where to allocate resources to better address the health needs of our community members.
CCTT is also partnering with the national research firm PRC to conduct 350 phone surveys in the region between January and February. Households will be selected at random, and the survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete. You can view the results of the past survey here.
Please help us get a good response.
