Statewide Suicide Prevention Council

The Meaning of Our Logo

When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back
into the formation, and another goose flies at the point position.

Suicide is not an easy problem to address day-in and day-out.
By involving others, we have a chance to lead as well as opportunities to rest.
The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council advocates for suicide prevention
at the statewide level and calls on other voices to be heard.

The geese in formation honk from behind
to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

We need to be sure our honk from behind is encouraging and
not something else. The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council
can help you target factors that reduce suicide
rather than be discouraged by statistics.

If a goose gets sick or wounded,
two geese drop out of formation and
follow it down to protect and care for it.

Individuals and communities struggling with issues surrounding
The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council
provides support to communities and agencies that
support individuals in crisis.
