The Suicide Prevention Program is focused on prevention and early intervention for those affected by suicide. Our goal is to prevent loss from suicide through education, intervention training and reducing stigma associated with suicide. As part of the Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services, Healthy Communities Division of Public Health, we are primarily funded by the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63).
Suicide remains a public health crisis across the nation. In Humboldt County, our rates of suicide death are 2 ½ times that of the state. Public Health continues to partner with agencies and businesses throughout the county on suicide prevention.
