Helping to save the lives of young people in Idaho. ILP’s mission is to foster connectedness and resilience throughout Idaho’s school communities to prevent youth suicide. The Project brings comprehensive, evidence-based programs to communities statewide and strives in all of its efforts to help Idaho youth find the hope, help, and strength they need to flourish.
To achieve Zero Suicide among our youth through prevention, awareness, and direction to treatment around the disease of depression. Change: People’s thinking. Eliminate stigma that surrounds mental illness. It is a disease. A disease that needs to be treated like any other disease. It’s time to talk about suicide. Change: How we interact with people. Listen. Really listen. And be kind. A little kindness really does go a long way. Change: Change the way hospitals track those suffering from mental illness. We need to be able to reach out to them. It is merely adding one line to hospital admissions.
SPAN’s vision is that Idahoans choose to live. Our mission is to reduce suicide in Idaho through statewide advocacy, collaboration, and education in best practices.
