Future Partners. Something as big as this, however, will need other partners to see it become sustainable. Business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, churches, foundations, national & state suicide prevention agencies will be approached for financial support.  Research is needed to examine all the issues related to Alaska’s high suicide rate that impacts the community. Fairbanks alone has one to two suicide deaths a month.  The whole community – teams; clubs; mental health; hospitals; schools; churches; artists; universities – must be working from the same script in order to form an “effective safety net” against the needless voluntary taking of life. ARCSP will be an important resource to our community as we link to these strategic partnerships.
