Collecting data on suicide deaths and attempts is an important part of measuring the success and impact of suicide prevention activities. Data collection techniques and capacity vary by state and community. In this webinar, presenters will review currently accessible national datasets, including the NVDRS, while also sharing different strategies being leveraged at the state level for collecting suicide death and attempt data. Participants will be invited to ask the presenters questions and share their own data collection strategies.
