Overview

The Stop Youth Suicide Campaign is a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to the formulation and implementation of prevention and intervention programs targeted toward at-risk individuals.  In addition to our current outreach programs, the SYS Campaign hosts an annual conference with the intent to prevent adolescent suicide through community awareness and educational programming for everyone from healthcare providers to teachers and parents.  The conference covers a variety of topics that affect today’s teenagers as we believe it is important to be mindful of their comprehensive needs instead of just focusing on one or two issues.
