Suicide Prevention in Tuolumne County
The Tuolumne County Suicide Prevention Task Force is committed to making our community suicide-safer. Data collected in 2013 shows our county as having the 4th highest ratio of completed suicides in all California counties. We know that these numbers represent our neighbors, friends and family who have left us and we feel their loss. We want to do all that we can to help people who are having thoughts of suicide move through the crisis of hope they are experiencing to embrace life and to keep safe from suicide.
Since November 2012, the YES Partnership/ATCAA has had the privilege of being the coordinating agency for the Suicide Prevention Services awarded by Tuolumne County Behavioral Health with funds from the MHSA/Prop 60. The following represents some of the efforts being made to make Tuolumne County a suicide-safer community.
