Youth In Crisis Coalition
Downers Grove Township is proud to be a founding member of this coalition. Our Life Skills Instructors reach into over two dozen elementary and middle schools in our Township to teach grade appropriate material on how to deal with the effects of teasing, bullying, anxiety, depression that can lead to serious emotional issues as students hit high school.
The Youth in Crisis Coalition believes that suicide can be a preventable mental health crisis. Right now, our biggest obstacle to effective prevention is silence. Silence that occurs among individuals in pain and silence within our communities. Proactive suicide prevention is about starting the conversation on mental health before it adversely impacts our lives.
The Youth in Crisis Coalition is committed to reducing suicide completion rates, and was formed as a direct response to the pain and impact suicide has already had on our communities in the greater DuPage County area.
