Niagara Suicide Prevention Coalition

Founded in 2003, in response to the increase of deaths by suicide in the Niagara Region, the Niagara Suicide Prevention Coalition (NSPC) was formed from over 25 community agencies and members at large. The purpose of the NSPC is to build strong and lasting community partnerships that will work together to implement our suicide prevention strategy, to address the needs of all residents of Niagara, and to reflect the values of a caring compassionate community. NPSC is a non-funded community coalition.
