WHO WE ARE

SPIN

Here at Suicide Prevention of the Inland Northwest (SPIN), we believe that everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention.  Our goal as a non-profit organization is to educate on and spread awareness of suicide prevention strategies to our local communities. Since 2003, this group has been active in the area, previously operating as Suicide Prevention Action Network of Idaho (SPAN-ID). Through health fairs, community events, presentations and professional conferences, we have been able to reach thousands of people and share our message of hope. We are so grateful for the community support we receive. Throughout the years we have partnered with local agencies and sponsors such as Art Uncorked, Lewis Clark State College, Twin County United Way, Regence BlueShield of Idaho, Moneysaver, Pepsi, and more!
