Suicide Prevention

Camden County Freeholders support suicide prevention.  By offering resources to the public, it is hoped we can decrease suicides in this county.  The Partnership for Suicide Prevention meets monthly and is tackling this issue.  For more information: contact (856) 374-6361.

The Department of Health & Human Services provides Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) trainings that are designed to teach anyone evidenced-based steps that are proven to reduce suicides.  The QPR mission is “to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.”
