Idaho suicide prevention group shutting down in March

October 26, 2018

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The parent organization of an Idaho suicide prevention organization will shut down in March but nine local chapters spread around the state will continue operating under different names.

Jeni Griffin is executive director of the Suicide Prevention Action Network. She tells the Idaho State Journal that it’s difficult raising donations and she didn’t want to compete with local chapters.

She says the parent organization carries liability insurance for the chapters and provides accounting and tax services.

Griffin says the local chapters will have to take on those responsibilities and others.
