""We're ecstatic," said Mike Brose, executive director of the mental health association. "This contribution allows us to continue our teen suicide prevention program, which was in jeopardy because of lack of funds.""

Brose said the program was begun in 1997.

"It started as a partnership with Columbia University's TeenScreen program," he said. "Tulsa was the first city in the United States to implement the program outside the New York area. TeenScreen is now in 66 communities across the country."
