Suicide Cluster Response Plan

Suicide clusters among teenagers and young adults in Sedgwick County have prompted intense concern among parents, students, school officials and others affected by the suicides in our community.  In response to these concerns, the Sedgwick County Suicide Prevention Coalition has developed this guide to help community leaders proactively respond to suicide clusters or situations that might develop into suicide clusters.
