Let's talk. We are ready to listen.
In 2002, the Kentucky Department for Mental Health,
Developmental Disability and Addiction Services
invited various community leaders to establish the
Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group (KSPG). Today,
KSPG is made up of various community stakeholders including suicide survivors (those who
have lost someone close to them to suicide), people who have attempted suicide, or know
someone who has attempted, mental health professionals and others who have an interest in
suicide prevention in the Commonwealth. Meetings are open to the general public.
For more information regarding the Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group, QPR gatekeeper
training, or ways that you or your community can get involved in suicide prevention, see our contact information below. It's finally time to talk about suicide.
