Putting Suicide Prevention into Practice by using Actionable Knowledge: New Suicide Prevention Products and Tools | CDC
CDC's Division of Violence Prevention (DVP) is committed to stopping suicide before it ever occurs. An important step in making this happen is ensuring people have access to the best available knowledge and tools to prevent suicide. Equally important is to make certain this information is also actionable, so it can be put into practice.
DVP worked collaboratively with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and three local suicide prevention programs in Tennessee, Oregon, and Maine to do just that. Through this partnership, the local programs developed three actionable knowledge tools, to improve prevention efforts in communities.
