The State of State, Territorial, and Tribal Suicide Prevention
March 26, 2021
In a survey of U.S. states, territories, and Native American tribes, CDC found a diverse array of suicide prevention efforts and key areas for improvement.
The findings reveal opportunities to increase capacity for implementing a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention, as well as a sustainable infrastructure in line with SPRC’s Recommendations for State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure.
To reach the national goal of reducing suicide 20% by 2025, SPRC encourages states and communities to apply the Infrastructure Recommendations, which lay out six essential infrastructure elements for advancing state suicide prevention efforts.
