Building Stronger Foundations: The Intersection of Suicide Prevention Infrastructure and Behavioral Health Services

Suicide is a global public health concern, and the need for robust prevention infrastructure is more critical than ever. This learning session will delve into the multi-faceted approach the Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) has taken to support states and territories in building effective and sustainable suicide prevention infrastructure. During this session we will explore the intersection of community behavioral health services and suicide prevention infrastructure through shared risk and protective factors, crisis supports, and focus on social determinants of health. Participants will learn about:

  • SPRC’s Recommendations for State Suicide Prevention Infrastructure including the six essential elements of prevention infrastructure
  • Evaluating suicide prevention infrastructure using the State and Territorial Suicide Prevention Needs Assessment (SNA)
  • Current national priority areas and key findings of the 2023 SNA
  • SPRC resources and tools to support comprehensive suicide prevention infrastructure
  • A case study demonstrating how effective suicide prevention infrastructure tangibly reduces suicide rates

During this session we will also briefly touch upon the broader significance of these elements within the wider suicide prevention landscape. This session aims to equip participants with the knowledge, tools, and inspiration to address shared gaps in effective suicide prevention and promote progress towards sustainable suicide prevention infrastructure.

A certificate of attendance will be provided to participants who attend 50% or more of the session.
