It was founded on the belief that suicide is a preventable tragedy, and that every individual plays a crucial role in the effort to prevent it. SAVE utilizes the latest and most reliable evidence to develop educational programming for youth and young adults, conduct training for professionals across a wide array of industries, and support those who have experienced the devastating loss of a loved one due to suicide. Through these vital initiatives, we know we can SAVE lives.
