About Us

The task force was created by Colleen Carpenter of Indiana University-Purdue University of Fort Wayne (IPFW). Since then, Colleen has gathered a group of individuals with a passion for suicide awareness and prevention. She is joined by Dustin Nisley as the co-facilitator of the task force.

Currently the task force is working on an action plan for programs and other ideas of how they are going to raise awareness around the state about bullying and suicide of LGBTQ youth.
