SPRC is excited to release the first-ever recommendations for State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure. Developed with an advisory panel of experts and stakeholders, the guidelines lay out essential infrastructure elements for advancing state suicide prevention efforts. They are designed to help state policy leaders assess the status of their current infrastructure and guide policymaking, funding, and administrative decisions accordingly. These guidelines may also be useful to others who support suicide prevention at the federal, state, and local level, including funders, suicide prevention coordinators, coalitions, community organizations, advocates, and researchers.
View the recommendations online or visit the tools section to download a PDF version, as well as a two-page customizable summary and an interactive checklist.
