Our Work & Our Beginnings

"Kindness is a language the blind

can see and the deaf can hear."

Our Team

We are a group of concerned citizens from a variety of professions ranging from law enforcement, morticians, therapists, educators, religious personnel, medical personnel, and Survivors of a Suicide loss.

Our Mission

The mission of Suicide Prevention of Southwest Wisconsin is to prevent suicide through awareness, education, collaboration, and improved access to mental health care.

In January 2018, due to lack of services and need, we expanded our geographical area to include Grant, Lafayette, Richland, Sauk, Crawford and Vernon Counties. We officially changed our name to reflect these additional counties in January 2023.

"Suicide Prevention Corporation of Southwest Wisconsin"
