Prevent Suicide 

Partners saving lives in our state

Prevent Suicide Wisconsin (PSW) is a statewide public-private partnership whose mission is to reduce the number of people who attempt and/or die by suicide in Wisconsin.
PSW grew out of a statewide strategic planning retreat held in 2009. Among the recommendations of that process were:
  • Create a statewide “brand” for suicide prevention to raise visibility for our efforts.

  • Create a leadership structure incorporating the variety of stakeholders involved in suicide prevention.

  • Create a statewide coordinator for suicide prevention.
