California Strategic Plan on Suicide Prevention
The California Strategic Plan on Suicide Prevention: Every Californian is Part of the Solution and an Executive Summary of the Plan are now available for download.
The Plan serves as a blueprint for action at the state and local levels to reduce suicide and its tragic consequences. It is built upon the vision that a full range of strategies – from prevention and early intervention to treatment and postvention – should be implemented that appropriately targets Californians of all ages and diverse backgrounds. While many challenges lie ahead in carrying out this work, tremendous opportunities also exist. Contact us to learn more about suicide prevention in California.
National Strategy for Suicide Prevention
The National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (NSSP) creates a framework for suicide prevention for the U.S. and provides a blueprint for action. Published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2001, and revised in 2012, it represents the combined work of advocates, clinicians, researchers, and survivors. Designed to be a catalyst for social change with the power to transform attitudes, policies, and services, the NSSP has guided the nation’s suicide prevention efforts for a decade.
National Action Alliance Group
Charting the Future of Suicide Prevention was written in 2010 by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, with guidance by the National Action Alliance Planning Group. This report reviews developments in the field of suicide prevention in the nine years since the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention was published. It identifies the areas of most important progress as well as the critical areas that have gone relatively unaddressed and also explores new issues or initiatives that have emerged since the development of the NSSP in 2001.
The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention is the public-private partnership advancing the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. For more information, please visit their National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention website.
American Indian & Alaska Native National Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan
The American Indian & Alaska Native National Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan 2011-2015 was developed by the Action Summit for Suicide Prevention and sponsored by the Indian Health Services. Released on August 3rd, 2011, this new five-year national suicide prevention strategic plan is based on fostering collaborations across the entire Indian Health System including tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations and other key community resources like academic disciplines with expertise in the problem. The strategic plan also mirrors, in many aspects, the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention, a national initiative to reduce the impact of suicide and suicide-related behaviors.
