This National Outcomes Evaluation has evolved based on previous outcome evaluations and new requirements by SAMHSA such that the Garrett Lee Smith Program design includes evaluation of core data from all grantees since the initiation of the program.
The evaluation design now supports more rigorous experimental or quasi-experimental approaches, which indicate the Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention Program-sponsored trainings have had a positive collective impact on subsequent identification behavior of trainees, on youth suicide mortality, suicide attempts, continuity of care and service provision through providers implementing a suicide safer environment approach.
