Lets-Talk-CircleWhat we do:

The Nevada County Public Health Department’s Suicide Prevention Education program seeks to reduce the factors that increase suicide risk while increasing the factors that protect people from suicide. We do this through:

  • Outreach, education and training about suicide prevention
  • Coordinating the Suicide Prevention Task Force, a community collaborative working to reduce suicides in Western Nevada County
  • Participation in and support of the Tahoe-Truckee Suicide Prevention Coalition


If someone you know needs immediate help with thoughts of suicide, please contact the Nevada County Crisis Line at 530-265-5811 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255. Call 911 if a suicide attempt is underway or medically necessary.
