Purple Packet Distribution Project
The Georgia Purple Survivors Of Suicide Packets were developed by SPAN-GA to help get information in the hands of those at first contact with new survivors (those that have lost a loved one to suicide).
By distributing these packets to Funeral Directors, Law Enforcement, EMS, Churches, Schools, Counselors, and others ...throughout a community, and educating those contacts of the importance of getting resources into the hands of survivors quickly, we are able to support survivors and get them to resources much more quickly.
We also deliver the Funeral Directors guide when delivering the purple packets to funeral homes.
We put the contents into a purple envelope so that if the are tucked away at the time they are first given to a survivor, they can easily spot the envelope when they go to look for it!
SPAN-GA works with community suicide prevention coalitions to develop a distribution plan and successfully deliver purple packets throughout their community. The purple packets are also supplied to any SOS Group throughout Georgia and they are available for home visits, and many other needs.
If you would like to share or deliver purple packets in your area, contact us!
