  • February 9, 2018  On Wednesday, Feb. 28, Suicide Prevention of York presents "Suicide Prevention: It's Everybody's Responsibility." This talk explains why we all need to know about suicide prevention, because suicide has no boundaries. It can happen to anyone. The discussion will include the magnitude of the problem; the signs and risk of suicide; suicidal communications; and the groups at high risk, including teens and students.

    After the presentation, there will be a question-and-answer session.

    Our presenter, Cindy Richard, is the director and founder of Suicide Prevention of York.

    The event takes place at York Suburban Middle School and is free and open to the community.

Mission Statement

Mobilizing people and resources to protect and empower our youth and strengthen our community.

Our Role

The York Suburban Communities That Care Alliance is a community-based initiative that supports our youth in making responsible decisions. The CTC process is a research-based, national program that is proven to work. How does it fit into the landscape of our York Suburban community? We're glad you asked!

YS CTC Alliance has a close working relationship with the York Suburban School District, but is not a part of the district nor does it receive any funds from the district. In much the same way that the York Suburban Education Foundation and Dollars for Scholars operate, YS CTC Alliance seeks to assist the district in providing additional support for our students.

YS CTC Alliance strives to build relationships between the school district and specific community resources to initiate and encourage programs and activities that may positively affect our youth. We work closely with school officials, law enforcement agencies, local government officials, concerned members of our community, parents, and students to protect and empower our youth and strengthen our community. Your individual support is important to us... and to our entire community!
