Using MHSA PEI funds, Tulare and Kings County formed a suicide prevention task force to focus their efforts. The collaboration between the two counties allows them to outreach to people without worrying about county boundary lines.
The task force sponsors an annual festival and high school video competition and they offer services to the large and hard-to-reach farm worker population in the counties. Additionally, they offer training for anyone in the community that helps people recognize the signs of depression.
