Mental Fitness has teamed up with the Suicide Prevention Office (SC Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative or SCYSPI) to create the Spartanburg Suicide Prevention Initiative, servicing all Spartanburg schools and colleges.
The program is led and directed by Taylor Davis, Ed.S., who is the School Suicide Prevention Program Coordinator through the Department of Mental Health in Columbia. Mental Fitness is working directly with the team in Columbia to provide the following for Spartanburg County schools and college:
- Direction of county-wide task force comprised of more than 40 participants from each school district, college and community agency working to reduce child and adolescent suicide losses in our county
- 4 hour symposium “tour” in collaboration with SCYSPI and The Forrester Center for Behavioral Health
- 5 Minute Mindfulness, Mindful Mondays and Flourish resiliency programs and trainings
- Online tools and resources through the Sharpen tech platform
We are grateful to our many partners for making this project possible.
