Virtual Learning Lab: State Suicide Prevention

Advancing suicide prevention requires a deliberate, comprehensive approach involving many partners. One program or one dedicated leader—or even an entire agency on its own—is unlikely to implement suicide prevention initiatives that are able to reach all of the individuals most in need of help.

This virtual learning lab is designed to help state- and community-level partnerships build and improve more effective prevention efforts. It contains information, in-depth activities, worksheets, and examples from other states to help leaders and coordinators move forward, overcome challenges, and prevent suicide in their communities.
