Faith Services

The ODMHSAS will support faith-based communities across the state to provide prevention services to their congregations and communities. Faith-based sector providers will deliver direct prevention services, link faith-based organizations with community resources, and build relationships between groups at risk in the community.

Under the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act, ODMHSAS has initiated the Oklahoma Youth Suicide Prevention and Early Intervention Initiative. ODMHSAS provided evidence-based youth suicide prevention programs (gatekeeper training and screening) throughout Oklahoma through local mental health prevention service providers, schools, youth-serving agencies, tribal governments, and colleges and universities.
