North Bay Suicide Prevention Project

Overview

The North Bay Suicide Prevention Project (NBSPP) is a regional California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) funded initiative that has brought American Association of Suicidology (AAS) accredited, locally responsive suicide prevention and crisis hotline services to five North Bay communities.

NPSPP reduces suicide in the six North Bay counties of Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino. All people living in these North Bay counties now have access to immediate, confidential, high-quality and effective 24/7 suicide prevention hotline services.

The hub of services will be located at Family Service Agency of Marin (FSA), which will serve as the NBSPP lead agency. The project is a collaboration between FSA of Marin and the five North Bay county governments.
