United for a Suicide Free New York

We all have a role to play in preventing suicides. Suicide is a complex problem. But through our collective action,  we can save lives. New York State is committed to preventing suicides. This site was designed to provide a comprehensive set of tools, information, and resources to support the effort.

New York State Suicide Prevention Conference

Sponsored by SPCNY and the New York State Office of Mental Health, the New York State Suicide Prevention Conference features leaders in suicide prevention research, treatment, service delivery, advocacy, and from the lived experience community. Held annually in September, the conference provides networking and learning opportunities for clinicians, administrators, coalitions, survivors, educators, advocates, and anyone interested in suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention.

We are now accepting proposals for oral and poster presentations.  The submission deadline is May 3.  Please view our conference page for more information and to submit your work!
