Founded in September 2017, Suicide Prevention India Foundation (SPIF), is a Section-8 not-for-profit, that was incubated at IIM-Bangalore. SPIF believes that suicide is the most preventable form of death and that suicidal behavior is understandable as a universal psychological, biological, social, spiritual and cultural phenomenon.

At the core of SPIF’s approach to suicide prevention is a WHO-recommended suicide prevention strategy called the Gatekeeper training. For which, it has a tie-up with QPR Institute, the world leader in suicide prevention training.
