NOPCAS is a voluntary non profit 501 c3 with a revenue stream coming from supporters, membership fees, and various fund raisers. Our major conferences were funded by government agencies and private foundations. Because suicide and suicidal behavior is a major issue in our community and we are finding that families need more and more support – we are moving towards major fundraising that will enable us to develop a national center that would include training services, support services, grief recovery services and much more. Our current goal is to move from a volunteer organization to a much stronger organization with a competent staff.
We have support groups that serve the DC and Metropolitan area for families who have lost a loved one to suicide.
We provide the latest information on suicide prevention and intervention best suited for our population and in general.
We provide gatekeeper training to organizations that work with constituents on a daily basis serving the community.
If you are in crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
