Suicide remains one of the 10 leading causes of death in the U.S. claiming more 44,000 lives in 2015 alone and causing tremendous pain and loss to communities across the country. Fortunately we know that suicide is preventable. The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) and its national partners, including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the SAMHSA-funded Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC), and others have united to unveil new tools aimed at improving community-based suicide prevention efforts nationwide.  

This webinar provides an overview of these two new resources; Transforming Communities: Key Elements for Comprehensive Community-based Suicide Prevention and Preventing Suicide: A Technical Package of Policy, Programs, and Practices.
