2007 – Task Force Coordinator Hired

The task force partnered with the Crisis Center of Birmingham to hire a part-time, oneyear Task Force Suicide Prevention Coordinator through local grant funding from The Community Foundation of Birmingham. Task force chairmanship was split shared between ADPH (Alabama Department of Health) and Health DMH-MR (AL Department of Mental Health Services). End of year efforts were focused on developing a grant application to the Garrett Lee Smith (SAMHSA) program. A $1.5 million grant was submitted by the Task Force in 2008.
