National Center for the Prevention of Youth Suicide

Nonprofit Organization

The National Center for the Prevention of Youth Suicide (NCPYS), a program of the American Association of Suicidology (AAS), is working to change how schools and communities address the issue of suicide among young people, by inviting you to take the lead. We recognize the need for student involvement and ideas in shaping the campaign against suicide. By engaging young adults and providing the facts, the NCPYS seeks not only to help those most at risk, but also to equip school communities with the skills they need to recognize warning signs, help friends in need, and know where to go for help.
