Non-profit organization promoting suicide prevention,

intervention, and grief support.

Our group was established in 2001, in response to a growing number of teen suicides in Oshkosh and the clear need for action to stem this alarming trend. While our initial focus was on teen suicide, our current focus includes all age groups.  We are a completely volunteer-based organization, and welcome and appreciate the help of any person or group who wishes to support our efforts.
