The Alliance has a variety of committees and advisory groups comprised of a variety of stakeholders working together on a focused critical area related to implementation of YSIPP.

Quarterly Webinars

Alliance Staff hold Webinars for suicide prevention advocates from across the state to connect and allow space for Regional Suicide Prevention Coalitions to share the work that is being done.

Youth Engagement

After hearing feedback from youth and young adults engaged in the Alliance, we have started holding one-time focus groups to hear from youth and young adults on specific topics relating to suicide prevention and mental health.
