Participate in a Listening Session

Leading up to the suicide prevention coalition, we are hosting several Listening Sessions around the county. The purpose of the listening sessions is to generate themes and insights for the coalition to help inform priorities for action. We want to hear from you about what puts county residents at risk for suicide, what helps keep them safe and what is needed to improve our prevention efforts.

Schedule a listening session with your organization or community:

If you are part of a group that meets regularly, we’d love to come talk with you about this important issue. Please contact Kathy Turner at or 503-742-5962 for more information.

What you can expect:

  • A 75 -90 minute conversation
  • We will ask questions about what puts people at risk, what keeps them safe, and what ideas you have for suicide prevention
  • The conversation will be taped so that major themes and insights can be shared to help guide the coalition’s priorities, but no individual identities will be disclosed.
  • Participation is completely voluntary.
