The research agenda supports the Action Alliance’s overall mission of advancing the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. It identifies research areas that – if carried out as recommended– show the most promise in helping us significantly reduce suicide attempts and deaths within the next five to ten years. To achieve that aim, the agenda calls for supporting the use of common measures to make it easier to share and combine data across studies, prioritize research with the greatest potential impact, and focus research on the highest-risk organizational settings and populations.
