The National Organization for People of Color against Suicide (NOPCAS, Inc.) NOPCAS has a primary focus and mission to increase suicide awareness and education in populations that are racially and ethically diversed Additionally, it is our aim to develop prevention, intervention, and postvention support services to these families and communities impacted adversely by the effects of violence, depression and suicide in an effort to decrease life threatening behavior. NOPCAS has been conducting workshops upon request and annual since 1998 in diversed communities. Every effort is made to disseminate knowledge about practices within the mental health services and suicide prevention and treatment fields that will enable attendees to develop awareness and skills to take back to their respective departments, communities, and institutions. We have a scientific Advisory Board that consists of leaders within their field of psychiatry, psychology, and social work and generally call on them to present their latest findings in research on depression and suicide at our conferences.
