BERKSHIRE COALITION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION (BCSP)

 

OUR MISSION IS TO SAVE LIVES.

TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD RESILIENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY, EDUCATE THE PUBLIC AND STRENGTHEN THE RESPONSE TO COMMUNITY NEED.

Our vision is for everyone to find an alternative to suicide and self-harm, to find relief from unbearable psychological pain, and for our community to meet their needs.

Join us at local activities, join our email list or contact us to be a guest at our monthly board meeting. We all have a role in preventing suicide. For more info, contact the BCSP Chair at peggyf@verizon.net  

The Berkshire Coalition is part of a network of regional coalitions throughout Massachusetts. Learn more about the Mass Coalition for Suicide Prevention at www.MassPreventsSuicide.org
