Adapted from: Community Assessment Tool developed by the Suicide Prevention Program at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. This assessment tool is targeted for “prevention networks,” coalitions of change-oriented organizations and individuals working together to promote suicide prevention. It comprises four sections intended to gather information on: a) each community addressed; b) all agencies and individuals within the prevention network; c) target populations; and d) community suicide risk factors and prevention resources.
