Suicide Prevention Grant

The Community Health Network of the Cape & Islands and Community Health Center of Cape Cod have received a $300,000 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to implement youth suicide prevention strategies across Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

The focus of the grant will be to train the broader community to recognize young people at risk and intervene quickly.

The grant was obtained with the assistance of many community partners and State Sen. Robert O’Leary, who will discuss the Cape & Islands Youth Suicide Prevention Project on Monday when he announces the funding.
