During 2020, Lorain County was one of seventeen suicide prevention coalitions funded as part of the Strengthening and Sustaining Ohio’s Suicide Prevention Coalitions (SSOSPC) Initiative. The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services partnered with the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation and Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs to enhance the work of suicide prevention coalitions across the state to align with the Suicide Prevention Plan for Ohio and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) seven strategies for preventing suicide. The participating suicide prevention coalitions were funded in the spring of 2020 to engage in an eight-month learning community with peers and receive wraparound support services in order to strengthen local suicide prevention efforts and build community capacity to make a greater impact in suicide prevention across Ohio.
Open to any concerned Lorain County resident. Join local professionals, family members, neighbors, and others united to save lives.
The Lorain County Suicide Prevention Coalition is a diverse group of community members with a shared interest in reducing and eliminating suicide by Lorain County residents.
