Metro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition

The vision of the Metro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (MASPC) is a resilient community dedicated to saving lives from suicide. We aim to inspire our community in preventing suicide and promoting resilience through conversation, education, support and advocacy.

Led by Region 6 Behavioral Health and The Kim Foundation, MASPC was established in May of 2016 as a collaborative effort between multiple behavioral health organizations, school districts, churches, survivors, law enforcement agencies and community members. 

The coalition meets the fourth Tuesday of every month (with the exception of no meetings in July or December) from 8:30-10 a.m. Meetings are offered in a hybrid format and are open to the community.

Coalition work groups include Lethal Means Safety, Community Engagement, Youth Serving Organizations, School Systems and Professionals.

If you are interested in getting involved with the coalition, please reach out to

Linked by Legacy

Launched by the Tom Karlin Foundation and The Kim Foundation, Linked By Legacy is an initiative to link family foundations across the country with shared missions of suicide prevention. Our mission is to serve as a coalition of grassroots suicide prevention organizations working together to save lives through advocacy, education and collaboration. 

Membership is open to any 501(c)(3) organization that focuses on suicide prevention and was founded in legacy of a loved one.
