VISION

What (the vision): create a world without suicide


Life like you mean itLiFE OF HOPE provides programs and resources to help people better understand the topic of suicide risk factors, ideation, behaviors, interventions, and the LiFE that exists through HOPE and healing. Ours is a message of HOPE, because with hope, all things (even healing, happiness, forgiveness, understanding, and LiFE) are possible. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. While the feelings of isolation, fear, shame, and overwhelming helplessness are very real for those who come to believe their struggle to survive is one they can no longer endure, there is HOPE and a LiFE-time worthy of living.

By working to provide community education, tools, and resources for improved coping during times of suicide ideation, we strive to prevent suicide attempts in Washington County. We believe that a reduction in suicide attempt will led to a natural reduction of lives lost to suicide.
