The mission of The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS) is to reduce the number of youth suicides and attempted suicides by encouraging public awareness through the development and promotion of educational training programs.

The SPTS Youth Council is open to high school students in Monmouth/Ocean Counties and Woodbridge Township, who are interested in learning more about mental health and wellness, stress management, resiliency, and how to help peers in need. Since 2015, over 100 high school students have participated in the Youth Council.

Students will participate in monthly meetings that focus on the components of the Wellness Wheel – emotional, intellectual, physical, social, environmental, financial, and spiritual wellness. Students will also learn about their role in suicide prevention, the importance of going to a trusted adult when they need help, and local and national resources.
