2013 Crisis Center Excellence Award
It is hard to imagine any crisis center in the United States that has done more in the last year to expand the scope and magnitude of youth suicide prevention services than Headquarters Counseling Center, Inc., in its Garrett Lee Smith youth prevention initiative. It seems appropriate to recommend the staff of Headquarters Counseling Center for their incredible dedication to suicide prevention, the amazing amount of work done by a few key people and motivated volunteers, and strong sommitment to best practices and evidence-based programs to impact the cause of suicidal youth.

We are proud to be one of the 23 state and tribal organizations from across the nation to receive a Garrett Lee Smith State and Tribal Suicide Prevention Grant.
