The Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MCSP) is a coalition created in September 2017 composed of community members/professionals who desire to promote mental health. We recognize that suicide has touched our town and by coming together, we can form an initiative that raises awareness and has the potential to save lives . More About Us
