Those who are contemplating or have lost to suicide
The journey as we build community capacity
That community plays a role in life promotion
A passionate group of community people who value the lived experience of others. This group will provide oversight to ensure that Roots of Hope demonstrates health equity, is centered in lived experience and helps connect suicide prevention work to other community initiatives that support the social determinants of health.
Passionate with a side of curiosity, the Evaluation Team explores how we can build community capacity past being gatekeepers who navigate those in crisis to clinical supports. This group helps us stop and reflect -What is going well? Where are we making impact? What are the forks in the road and tipping points that are guiding this work and creating the path forward?
Communities play an important role in preventing suicide and promoting life. To have good mental health people need a sense of belonging and safety, inclusion, affordable housing, food security, financial stability to name just a few. Many people work every day to support people in our communities to have these basic needs. Below are organizations that support people in achieving good mental health.
