Through a model of community-based suicide prevention we help guide the work to address suicide as it presents in various populations. We support you and your team in determining systems of care for communities.
Community-Based Suicide Prevention
The work is to look at major systems that are lacking structure and help to guide the work that needs to be done.
Evaluating the current state of resources locally including private and community-based practitioners, crisis teams, groups in place, etc. Looking at gaps in services and what could be developed to fill the needs.
Looking at themes within the community surrounding losses. Working on a plan to address potential issues moving forward.
Some programs and foci may need to address certain populations.
When a loss occurs within the community, postvention management is vital to ensuring there are not additional losses. Wrapping around survivors, working on correct messaging, and setting up resources.
Ensure that that providers, clinicians, and people in the community hear messages that build the values and support internally.
