The Surgeon General’s Call to Action seeks to advance progress toward full implementation of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. The Call to Action emphasizes that the 13 goals and 60 objectives of the National Strategy remain as relevant today as they were when the strategy was last updated, and that these goals and objectives need to be fully implemented to make a difference in reducing suicide rates. In particular, the Call to Action zeroes in on six key actions that must be implemented to reverse the current upward trend in suicide deaths in the United States.
