If you're reading this, you have been affected in some way. You may have only heard about the heartbrake experienced by a family in your community. You may have experienced sadness at the loss of a talented actor or other artist. It may be closer to home. It's inescapable in a close-knit community with a suicide rate that leads the state. Help us provide a lifeline to those who may feel that they have no other way to make it through life's struggles. Help us provide the support for families who are at risk and for those who have suffered the most tragic of losses. Please support my campaign with a donation today.

There is nothing more tragic than losing a loved one. It is even more devastating when that loved one’s life is lost to suicide. There are so many painful questions for those left behind and too few if any answers. Many in our community are shocked to learn that Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties exceed the rate of New York State in completed Suicides. We must do more to prevent these tragedies, provide hope and solutions for those in crisis and support their families.
At Behavioral Health Services North (BHSN), we have been devoted to raising suicide awareness and providing prevention services since we were established in 1999. In 2006 due to funding provided by the State of New York through the advocacy of Senator Betty Little, we received funding to administer a suicide hotline for Clinton County. Today the funds for this critical service are dwindling.
We ask that you help us continue our important work to prevent suicide in our community by making your donation today. A donation in any amount will help us reach our goal.
You can also help us fundraise by creating your own fundraiser on this campaign page. For assistance, email email@example.com or call (518) 563-8206 x149.
