The Suicide Prevention Program at the Utah Pride Center was created in 2020 to formalize the suicide prevention services that had been offered for years to the community. Our team aims to address all aspects of suicide in the LGBTQ+ community from early intervention and prevention to postvention support on a state-wide level. This department operates under the three pillars of Education, Resources, and Support and serves the entire state of Utah. UPC Suicide Prevention Team helped create the first LGBTQ+ specific suicide prevention plan in Utah with DHS and the Utah Suicide Prevention Coalition - Utah LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention Plan 2020-2023.

Suicide Prevention Training
We offer training sessions that are open to the general public and rotate days of the week to try to accommodate various schedules. To find out when our next training is please fill out the form. We can also provide private group training.
After completing training participants should be able to 1) recognize someone at risk for suicide 2) intervene with those at risk 3) refer them to an appropriate resource.
Suicide Prevention Boxes
Suicide Prevention Boxes have been created by our team as a way to safely and efficiently get suicide prevention materials to organizations across Utah. These boxes contain materials with crisis hotlines such as posters, business cards, buttons, magnets, stickers, bookmarks, etc. This gives your organization the opportunity to display the resources and make them available to clients who enter your spaces.
We recommend having the materials at an easy access point so people do not have to specifically ask for them in an effort to limit barriers. When you start running low on supplies email our department
