Mission Statement

The mission of SAVE is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a resource to those touched by suicide.

Description

SAVE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors and operating under the nonprofit laws of the State of Minnesota. Over the years, SAVE's Board of Directors, volunteers and staff often include survivors who bring a special affinity for suicide prevention and depressive illnesses along with other skills to ensure organizational growth, development and effective management and operational talents to the agency.

SAVE’s mission is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a resource for those touched by suicide. To save lives, our goals are to: 1) increase our scope of impact in public awareness and media; 2) advance and influence the field through shaping the national agenda and building a knowledge base through scientific study of suicide; 3) proactively engage survivors; and 4) be a recognized leader in prevention and postvention awareness, education and materials. By educating the public, SAVE hopes to remove the stigma associated with suicide and help rid sufferers of the shame, guilt and blame that often accompany mental illness. SAVE’s expertise and capacity lies in its long history of suicide prevention programming and in its unique collaboration between boards, staff, volunteers and community partners.
