Central Ohio VA Suicide Prevention works to create and establish strong suicide prevention workgroups and coalitions in the 13 Central Ohio communities in our catchment area. We want to engage every community in suicide prevention for the benefit of all, whether they are Veterans, family members, or have no military affiliation at all. Our mission is to create strong networks in Columbus for identifying those at risk for suicide and creating a path for treatment, to create community connectedness as a way to combat suicide risk, and raising awareness around lethal means safety. We can also provide trainings to any community that would like them. Our services are free of charge and are available to everyone, because we believe that suicide prevention is everyone's business.
