    The Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN USA) is a 501(c)(3) organization
    dedicated to preventing suicide through public education and awareness, community
    action and federal, state and local grassroots advocacy. The organization was founded
    in 1996 by Gerald and Elsie Weyrauch of Marietta, Georgia, survivors of the suicide of
    their 34-year-old physician daughter, Terri. Their goal was to create a way for survivors
    of suicide – those who have lost someone to suicide – to transform their grief into positive
    action to prevent future tragedies.
