The SPRC Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention Collaboration Continuum (see printable graphic) is a Web-based resource designed to help suicide prevention programs in state, tribal, campus, and community settings build and strengthen connections with their substance abuse prevention and treatment counterparts. This information and tool may also be useful for developing partnerships with other types of organizations.
