RMCP | A Leader is Crisis Work Nationwide

A Proud Partner & Collaborator

As leaders in high-quality crisis services, RMCP is committed to contributing to the fields of crisis work and suicidology nationally. Our contributions focus on two areas: service and producing knowledge in the field.

Our service contributions are invested in sharing our expertise by developing a strong presence in statewide and national coalitions and committees that support the development of crisis work and suicide intervention. Because RMCP staff members have individualized subject matter expertise, we encourage them to engage in knowledge production through conference and academic publication, as well as presenting, training, and contributing to articles and other media.
