Genesee-Orleans-Wyoming County
Suicide Prevention Coalition

The Genesee-Orleans-Wyoming Regional Suicide Prevention Coalition was born over a series of lunches in 2018. The geographic proximity and similarities of our three counties, in addition to the reality that the coordinators truly enjoy spending time together, led to the formation of our first event “A Helping of Hope” Awareness Breakfast (we really do enjoy meals!). When the state announced grant funding, a tri-county project seemed a natural fit. GOW Pathway to Hope was born in January 2019. Our group plans to focus on creating online and media campaigns focusing on the #BeThe1To messaging. We also plan to provide education on suicide and suicide prevention to primary care practitioners, members of the sportsmen community, and certain high risk populations. We hope that you’ll join us!
