Frontline Crisis Response Solutions is committed to leading our community in suicide postvention and aftercare support. A recent report from the Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office indicates that in 2016 there were 122 completed suicides in Collin County, the highest amount in 5 years. And for every suicide, an estimated 150 people are intimately affected.
These are startling facts which is why we invite you to join us as a sponsor, volunteer or participant at the Hope4Today 5K, Fun Run and Virtual Race on September 9. By partnering with FCRS you will lend a hand in assisting people who have lost a loved one by suicide and providing support and resources for further coping. Because suicide statistics are rising in our country and throughout Collin and Denton County, any level of support you are able to offer will be greatly appreciated.
