We are a community coalition of students, mental health professionals, concerned parents, nurses and caring volunteers dedicated to reducing suicide in Jackson County, Oregon. We are an outgrowth of the Garret Lee Smith Memorial Act which funds youth suicide prevention in Oregon. Our first meeting was in February of 2007. We are incorporated as an Oregon non-profit organization. We are currently using a fiscal sponsorship model for accepting donations. In April of 2013 we elected to do business as the Jackson County Suicide Prevention Coalition to better reflect our concerns for suicide prevention in all age groups.
