The Crawford-Marion ADAMH Board nominated
the Crawford County Suicide Prevention Coalition
for consideration of the Advocate of the Year Award
and won. The Advocate of the Year Award is an
annual award to recognize an international education
advocate who has excelled in grassroots advocacy.
This Coalition was founded approximately 20 years
ago in partnership of the Crawford-Marion ADAMH
Board with a small group of family members that
had lost loved ones to suicide. This group’s meetings
developed into a coalition that would increase
suicide prevention awareness and offer hope to those
in need in Crawford County.
