SPRC Report


Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC)
Education Development Center, Inc (EDC)

This report summarizes the feedback received from Garrett Lee Smith (GLS) state, tribal, and campus suicide prevention grantees (alumni grantees) surveyed in 2012 to determine (1) what suicide prevention efforts they had been able to continue after funding ended and (2) how they were able to continue their program and/or activities (the full report from the study can be found here). It provides guidelines and worksheets to help current grantees and other agencies and organizations plan how to best continue suicide prevention efforts. It offers key considerations for each of SPRC’s five recommendations and work space on each page to help develop action steps and assist in building a strong foundation for sustaining suicide prevention programs.
