A suicide coalition in Odessa will have their first meeting on Thursday.

That's after a surge of teen suicides in Midland.

A forum was held to discuss the problem and that's where the Permian Basin Suicide Coalition was formed.

Now the newly formed group will meet on Thursday at the Behavioral Healthcare Center off of FM 1788 at 11:30 a.m.

They've scheduled an initial planning meeting.

Professionals and clergy are invited to come out, speak and give their input.

They will also be discussing future conferences, community education and how others can join the coalition.
