The Traumatic Loss Coalition (TLC) is dedicated to excellence in suicide prevention and in providing a collaborative and coordinated mental health response to a global or community crisis affecting our school-aged youth. All individuals committed to this cause are invited to join the coalition. TLC supports county-wide coalitions bringing together educators, mental health providers, law enforcement, members of community-based and faith-based organizations to share their ideas and experiences.
The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP) plays an active role in seeking to reduce suicide rates through initiating and participating in projects to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative approaches to suicide prevention. In its suicide prevention projects, AFSP is working in partnership with many other individuals, organizations and institutions throughout the United States and abroad, who share our dedication to finding new and better ways to prevent suicide. A key goal of each project is to disseminate infomation about what has been learned, through articles that reach both professional and lay audiences.
