The work of the Commission is aligned with national suicide prevention efforts, especially in the State’s historic and continuing emphasis on youth suicide prevention. The Commissioner’s Plan (the Plan) also puts forth a strengthened focus on preventing suicide not only with high risk groups like veterans, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning individuals, and persons who are unemployed but also at critical high-risk periods, such as following an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
The Plan’s three goals are:
Increase and broaden the public’s awareness of suicide, its risk factors, and its place as a serious and preventable public health concern. Increase evidence-based or best practice training opportunities for professionals; Increase awareness through community education; and Increase State policy and leadership efforts.
Enhance culturally competent, effective, and accessible community-based services and programs;
Assure effective services to those who have attempted suicide or others affected by suicide attempt or completion.
