Mission Statement                                                   

The mission of the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program®, San Diego Chapter is to prevent youth/young adult suicide through education, training, and public awareness campaigns. YRSPP® helps reduce stigma associated with asking for help. Through safe and effective suicide prevention messaging youth/young adults will reach out to each other in a purposeful, helpful way when they or their friends are in need or struggling and will bring their own issues and those of their friends to trusted adults. In turn, the trusted adults, be it school staff, family or community members will know how to respond to a young person in crisis and what steps to take to ensure that they receive the help they need.
