County Suicide Prevention Taskforce

Joe Barnhart and Mela Calomino

The Task Force is committed to helping children, teens and adults at risk for suicide, as well as supporting the family members and community at large affected by suicide.

We envision a community where through passion, open discussion, education, collaboration and support, suicide is prevented and help is available to all those in need. We believe in a community that is dedicated to doing everything possible to prevent suicide. We believe suicide is a public health issue that can be addressed through talking, listening, understanding, connecting and taking action.
