Community-based efforts to implement effective suicide prevention strategies are key to the Action Alliance's goal of reducing the rate of suicide nationwide. The Action Alliance and its partners are working to implement and support community-based approaches, with a current emphasis in reaching faith communities, workplaces (especially the public safety sector and construction industry), American Indian/Alaska Native populations, and the sport industry. In addition, work has also been done to engage service members, veterans and their families, as well as juvenile justice settings.

A key community-focused resource developed by the Action Alliance is Transforming Communities: Key Elements for the Implementation of Comprehensive Community-Based Suicide Prevention, which identifies seven key elements for comprehensive community-based suicide prevention.
