Albany County Community Resource Directory for Mental Health Services [PDF]

This directory has been put together by the Suicide Prevention Education Committee (SPEC), a group of community service providers in Albany County that seeks to find ways to make the existing network of services work efficiently and effectively to support people who may be considering suicide and families and friends who may be grieving the loss of someone to suicide.
