Fall Walk – Stay Tuned

A second Walk will be held in the Fall at the Perkasie Campus of Bucks County Community College.  Please stay tuned for future updates to this website for details. The Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force hopes you will join us at one of the Walks to help us raise Awareness and Funds to end suicide in Bucks County!

Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force

The mission of the Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force is: “Through advocacy, education, prevention, intervention, and postvention we will work to eliminate suicide.” The overarching goals are to reduce stigma, increase the number of individuals seeking help, support individuals who have lost loved ones to suicide and decrease suicides in our county.  Much has been accomplished in the three years that the Task Force has been in existence including having suicide prevention signs placed at Septa rail stations, the development of a First Responder Hotline and the Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) initiative designed to educate Bucks County employees and community members to recognize the signs of suicide.

The Task Force tri-chairs continue to bring together community members, county representatives and behavioral health agency staff to move forward with goals that have been established by each sub-committee.  Sub-committees focus on specific populations such as Adults, Older Adults, Young Adults, School-aged Youth, First Responders, Families and Professionals.

If you’re interested in joining the Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force or one of the sub-committees, please contact Wendy Flanigan at 215-444-2882 or wflanigan@buckscounty.org.
