A Minnesota program has received funding to expand its suicide prevention efforts. The Thrive Range program, which provides mental health and substance abuse resources to rural parts of St. Louis County, won the four-year grant from the state department of health. The funding will help the program work with local health care systems to adopt the Zero Suicide model and support the rollout of a mental health and substance abuse program in schools. Thrive Range will also use the grant to provide free access to mental health and substance abuse resources on its website, with a particular focus on preventing suicide among men and veterans.
