Who We Are

The Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force is a committed team of professionals and volunteers dedicated to the mission of ending suicide.

Through a variety of programs, initiatives, and events your Task Force has brought together a coalition of organizations across the private and public sectors to work toward this goal.

During the past nine years, our members have led and contributed to efforts throughout Bucks County to educate residents on depression and mental health, reduce the related stigmatizations, encourage seeking assistance, and improve access to services.

The Hold On You Matter Walk to Make a Difference and the Arts & Music Festival are inspiring community events that brings hope to Bucks County residents while raising awareness of suicide and supporting prevention. Over the years, your contributions have supported the growth of programs across the community! 

We are so grateful to our sponsors and partners!
