In 2017, there were 78 deaths by suicide in Delaware County. In 2016, there were 65 deaths by suicide. This is down from 2014 where there were 92 deaths by suicide. Every life lost by suicide is too many. In 2009, there were 78 suicides in Delaware County which was a sharp spike from 60 in 2006. Each of these deaths leaves six to eight seriously bereaved individuals behind. The mission of the Delaware County Suicide Prevention and Awareness Task Force (DCSPATF) is to raise an understanding of suicide as a preventable community health problem. The task force is affiliated with many behavioral health organizations in the county, the county medical society, local hospitals and health systems, our county government, the intermediate unit and many school districts in Delaware County. For our 15th annual 5k Run/Walk, we are going virtual. To participate, complete your 5k anytime and anywhere between Saturday, September 5th through Monday, September 7th. Take photos and email the photos to our email address at for us to post the photos to our Facebook page. To encourage group interaction and a sense of community, we have created 3 prize categories. Gift cards/guest passes will be awarded for the (1) Best Dressed, (2) Best Family Photo and (3) Best Pet Companion. Register by noon on Friday, August 21, 2020 to receive a t-shirt.
