Suicide Prevention Action Plan Committee (SPAPC)
Working Together to End Suicide
The San Diego County Suicide Prevention Council (SPC) is a
collaborative community-wide effort focused on realizing a vision
of zero suicides in San Diego County. Our
mission is to prevent
suicide and its devastating consequences in San Diego
On April 1, 2010, the County of San Diego awarded CHIP
a contract to form an interagency Suicide
Prevention Council (SPC) to create and introduce a Mental
Suicide Prevention Action Plan for San Diego County. With
continued support from the County of San Diego, the SPC provides
oversight, guidance, and collective support to implement the
recommendations of the Suicide Prevention Action Plan.
This website will provide you with ongoing information
