our history

When Montana has been in the top five states with the highest suicide rate for the past four decades, we will only meet with success with an organized, unified effort that draws together concerned Montanans who pool their strengths, expertise and time in 'reaching out to help our neighbors' on this important issue.


Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
