The Suicide Prevention Task Force (SPTF) is a collaboration between numerous government entities, community-based organizations, faith groups, and concerned community members throughout Tulare County. Donations to the SPTF will help increase prevention and early intervention services and help our community members better understand and recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide risk.
SPTF provides training, activities, and education throughout the community to increase awareness of the signs of suicide risk and promote the available prevention and early intervention resources in Tulare County. Communities need prevention services to promote mental health and address problems long before they become acute to effectively reduce suicides and suicidal behavior. And communities need a coordinated system of services to effectively respond to crisis situations, as well as a forum where the issue of suicide can be addressed.
