What We Do

All money given to NSSPC is invested right back into our communities and into suicide prevention and postvention efforts!

The Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition (NSSPC) mobilized in 1999 and is a voluntary group made up of committed and passionate people representing public and private agencies, suicide survivors, and Nebraskans interested in suicide prevention.

The mission of the NSSPC is to increase awareness, decrease stigma, and implement programs throughout Nebraska aimed at suicide prevention.

NSSPC is recognized by the Department of Health and Human Services as the primary group responsible for coordinating Nebraska’s suicide prevention efforts. NSSPC relies on the generosity of private foundations, grants, and in-kind donations to continue the work of preventing suicide in Nebraska.

Annually, we enhance and support suicide prevention efforts throughout the state through our Nebraska State Suicide Prevention Coalition Mini-Grant Program. This program annually awards multiple individual $500-$3,000 grants to local suicide prevention coalitions, Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors (LOSS) Teams, schools, communities, and non-profit entities to support local suicide prevention and postvention efforts.
