Leaving a legacy: Recommendations for sustaining suicide prevention programs

In 2012, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) asked the Suicide
Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) to assess sustainability among Garrett Lee Smith (GLS) grantees whose grant period had ended (‘alumni’ grantees). This report is based on the experiences of GLS alumni grantees. It is SPRC’s hope that the findings and recommendations will benefit not only current grantees, but all suicide prevention practitioners working to address suicide in diverse settings (regardless of the funding source). The recommendations incorporate the findings of a literature review as well as a grantee survey and interviews.
