About Us

The ND Suicide Prevention program resides within The Division of Injury Prevention and Control. The Division of Injury Prevention and Control is dedicated to reducing injuries to North Dakotans through leadership, education, resources and policy.

Governor Jack Dalrymple and the North Dakota State Legislature continue to support the Suicide Prevention Program, funding program efforts in schools and communities across North Dakota.

The Suicide Prevention Program proudly partners with multisector organizations to provide a comprehensive systems approach to suicide prevention. This effort works to educate ND communities on the warning signs and symptoms of suicide and how to get help for people who may be suicidal.
