State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure

A strong state infrastructure serves as a solid foundation for effective, comprehensive, and sustained suicide prevention. Working with a panel of experts, SPRC developed these recommendations to help you identify and strengthen key elements of suicide prevention infrastructure in your community.

The recommendations are organized into six essential elements with specific guidance in each area. You can read the recommendations and real-life examples from around the United States on each essential element page: AuthorizeLeadPartnerExamineBuild and Guide.
