Guided 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 (NSSP) 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 to claim attention or offer solutions since the development of the NSSP in 2001. Its purpose is to inform discussions about future initiatives to achieve the ultimate public policy goal behind the NSSP: to reduce the morbidity and mortality of suicidal behaviors.
