This Community-Led Suicide Prevention resource hub lists best practice tools that help groups take action on community suicide prevention.
This toolkit follows from the World Health Organization (WHO) report Preventing Suicide: A Global Imperative (WHO, 2014) by providing practical steps for engaging communities in suicide prevention activities. It describes a participatory bottom-up process by which communities can work together to identify, prioritize, and implement activities that are important and appropriate to their local context.
This toolkit assists high schools and school districts in designing and implementing strategies to prevent suicide and promote behavioral health. It includes tools to implement a multifaceted suicide prevention program that responds to the needs and cultures of students.
Getting Started Guide: Community-Led Suicide Prevention is a step-by-step guide for community members on how to start working with Community-Led Suicide Prevention’s seven elements and successfully launch your local suicide prevention efforts.
