This article describes an initial broad-based assessment conducted by the Colorado National Collaborative, a public health effort to align national state and local injury prevention initiatives. The assessment consisted of the creation of a data dashboard utilizing Colorado Violent Death Review data, combined with an environmental scan of existing state- and county-level public health suicide prevention efforts in order to create efficiencies in suicide prevention planning.
