Suicide prevention

takes place in many settings

Suicide prevention is a high priority for people working to promote wellness and reduce health disparities affecting American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).

Teachers, mental health providers, and all other school personnel who interact with students can play an important role in keeping them safe. 

Suicide and suicidal behaviors are a major concern for colleges and universities. Fortunately, these settings provide unique opportunities for comprehensive suicide prevention planning.

Primary care is the setting in which Americans receive most of their health and behavioral health care.  Frequent contacts and long-standing relationships between primary care providers and their patients make this an ideal setting for suicide prevention.

Because suicide is closely linked to mental health and substance use disorders, behavioral health care providers play a key role in treating suicide risk and related behavioral health problems.

Individuals in a suicidal crisis often seek help at a hospital emergency department (ED). The ED visit is an important window of opportunity, however brief, to intervene and save lives. 

Faith communities are a natural setting for suicide prevention.

People often spend a large portion of their day at a workplace, an important setting for suicide prevention.
