To raise awareness, the Elkhart County Suicide Prevention Coalition regularly publishes articles to inform, inspire and offer hope to those considering death by suicide, family members affected by a past event, and community members concerned about the issue.
Here are some of the coalition's recent writings by members of the coalition.:
