Supporting Safety-Creating Hope

The Canvas Health Suicide Prevention Program provides services to the Dakota Communities and 57 counties in Minnesota. Services include research and evidence based culturally responsive presentations as well as Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) suicide prevention trainings. Additionally, the program offers collaboration activities with community-based suicide prevention efforts through our Regional Coordinators and Tribal Liaison.

Our school presentations are available for students in grades 7-12, and QPR trainings for those 18 and over. Our aim is to support empowering everyone in the communities we serve to help prevent suicide.

Presentations are free of charge and funded by the Minnesota Department of Health.

If you are in crisis, dial or text 988 to be connected to the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.

Please contact the Regional Coordinator and Tribal Liaison that serves your area to schedule a presentation or training.

Arianna Santos

Suicide Prevention Regional Coordinator

Suicide is the most preventable form of death. It poses difficult questions to ask when there is a belief of crisis for the self or for others. I believe my participation within the program of suicide prevention in the southwest region of Minnesota will provide a direct resource people can trust and lean back on.
