The Utah County HOPE Taskforce consists of community agencies that have combined efforts with the common goal to prevent suicide. The Taskforce meets throughout the year to update members on current activities and discuss community issues. The HOPE Taskforce offers educational training and programs throughout the state to help promote suicide prevention and awareness.
NUHOPE – Northern Utah Hold On Persuade Empower: The NUHOPE Suicide Prevention Task Force was initiated in the fall of 2007 to address the issue of suicide in Weber County. Since that time the group has expanded to serve Davis County as well.
