Who We Are
Onondaga County Suicide Prevention Coalition (OCSPC) is a
collaboration of stakeholders devoted to creating a suicide safe community. We currently have 40 members including service providers, volunteers and invested community members.
We’re excited about the work we have completed since 2016. Our diverse representation spans county, state, and national levels.
When do we meet?
OCSPC holds monthly meetings for all interested members of the public on the second Tuesday of each month. Our schedule for the remainder of 2023 is as follows:
Each meeting is accessible through video conferencing via ZOOM. Meetings are open to the public. You can join a ZOOM meeting from your PC, MAC, tablet, Apple or Android device. The ZOOM application must be downloaded to your device before you can join a ZOOM conference. Please email [email protected] for a meeting invite.
OCSPC can provide in-person or remote trainings. Please explore the below trainings/training topics to learn more.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
OCSPC is deeply rooted in our community. Each project and campaign has incredible thought and intention behind it. Our members work collaboratively to assess the needs of Onondaga County residents and to offer timely and tailored resources to individuals, families and other groups who have been impacted by suicide.
There are many ways to get involved in the work of our Coalition. This may include attending our general meetings, working on one of our committees, taking or providing a training program or donating your time.
