SPAN Idaho Regional Chapters
From its beginning, SPAN Idaho, as a grassroots organization, has encouraged and recognized the importance of regional and local involvement to prevent suicide. SPAN Idaho has developed regional Chapters who organize and conduct regional and local suicide prevention training, awareness campaigns, media education and many other activities.
SPAN Idaho decided to use the same approach as the Department of Health and Welfare by organizing Idaho into seven Regions. Each Region serves several counties and has one or two larger communities which are the hub for service delivery in the counties they serve. The Regions are listed below.
There are now active Chapters going in all seven regions. To find out more about the SPAN Chapter in your region, click on your region below.
