The death of fashion icon Kate Spade has renewed discussions on mental health and suicide prevention.

The Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc. is the lead agency for the Oneida County Suicide Prevention Coalition (OCSPC).

Their mission is to prevent suicide in our community by strengthening the coordination and accessibility of services; providing awareness of suicide prevention, facilitating intervention and post-prevention services/programs; enhancing support to those affected by suicide. The coalition meets every third Wednesday of each month at 9:00 AM at CFLR, Inc.'s Utica office (502 Court Street, Suite 401). Oneida County Suicide Prevention Coalition (OCSPC) offers a host of services, including postvention; education and training; information and referral; community awareness; events; guest speakers; lectures; etc.


Postvention
The purpose of Postvention Teams is to have a community wide team(s) that responds in a coordinated and comprehensive manner in the time of a tragic event. The primary purpose is to help reduce the risk of contagion and support all those impacted by a tragic event.

Education and Training
In 2013, Oneida County Suicide Prevention Coalition (OCSPC) hosted several free community workshops, community forums and special events to raise awareness of preventive measures. Workshops included a focus upon mental health, self-care, survivors, communication and more.
