Our Mission is to prevent suicide through advocacy, education and collaboration.
Established in 2009, Berkshire Coalition for Suicide Prevention is part of a network of regional coalitions throughout Massachusetts. Our members consist of survivors of suicide loss and concerned citizens representing a variety of fields and industries, including health, law enforcement, education, social work, mental health and public policy. Together, we collaborate to build resilience in our communities, educate the public and strengthen the response to the community need. Through these efforts, we:
Advocate for public policy issues and budgets
Assist at-risk individuals and populations
Educate about risk factors for suicide and self-harm
Partner with schools, agencies, and providers
Provide resources and support groups
Reduce stigma and break barriers to self-help
Secure funding from public and private sources
