The McHenry County Suicide Prevention Task Force has been instrumental in implementing community interventions and prevention strategies. Including, Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR), an evidenced based suicide prevention program that has been used to train thousands of community members in recognizing and intervening with suicidal individuals, facilitation of the Survivors of Suicide Loss Support Group, as well as co-hosting a variety of mental health and suicide prevention educational trainings and events throughout the year.
We all have the ability to prevent suicide, your participation and generosity to Never Walk Alone directly benefits our community and supports the Mission of the MCSPTF so that we may continue to expand our efforts to provide education, spread awareness of mental health and suicide, and to support those who have been impacted by suicide.
