National Strategy for Suicide Prevention 2024

The 2024 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention is meant to address gaps in the field and to guide, motivate, and promote a more coordinated and comprehensive approach to suicide prevention in communities across the country. The comprehensive approach addresses the many factors associated with suicide, with the recognition that there is no single solution. It seeks to prevent suicide risk in the first place (upstream prevention), identify and support people with increased risk through treatment and crisis intervention (downstream prevention), prevent reattempts, promote long-term recovery, and support survivors of suicide loss.
