The strategies in the technical package support the goals and objectives of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention1 and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s priority to strengthen community-based prevention.2 Commitment, cooperation, and leadership from numerous sectors, including public health, education, justice, health care, social services, business, labor, and government can bring about the successful implementation of this package.
