Suicide Prevention Grant Announcement!

The Center for Urban Youth and Family Development (CUYFD) is proud to announce that we have been award a grant from the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority (DWMHA) to begin Suicide Prevention work! Starting this spring CUYFD will begin doing suicide prevention workshops in both local high schools, and with our Summer Youth Employment Program participants to increase awareness about suicide in our community and to prevent further instances of suicide attempts. Additionally, CUYFD will be offering free Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) trainings for anyone interested in becoming a Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper. We would like to thank the DWMHA for presenting us with this opportunity and we look forward to doing this important work in our community.


If you are interested in QPR or LIfelines suicide prevention training please feel free to contact us by email at or phone (313)340-3101
