Our Mission – Suicide Prevention
Elyssa’s Mission is an organization that provides the resources to support at-risk teens and prevent suicide. We offer hands-on support to area schools, religious and community organizations to help educate students, staff and parents on how to recognize those teens most at risk. Elyssa’s Mission is proactive in funding, distributing, and implementing the SOS Signs of Suicide® program, as well as other prevention programs that are evidence based and backed by mental health professionals.
