Suicide Prevention

  • Hope 4 Utah
    • The impact of suicide is far-reching and affects entire communities.  When cities, mental health organizations, and schools work together to prevent youth suicide, the entire community is strengthened.
    • We speak a common language we are educated to understand warning signs and recognize who is at risk.
    • We gain common understanding-we know how to intervene and what to do.
    • We have common knowledge-we know how to access resources and where to go for help.
    • Working together, there is HOPE that suicide can be prevented.
  • What are Hope squads?
    • HOPE Squads are the eyes and ears of your school.  They are comprised of students who are trained to watch for at-risk students-provide friendship, identify warning signs, and seek help from adults.
