National Strategy for Suicide Prevention

The 2024 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention is a bold 10-year, comprehensive, whole-of-society approach to suicide prevention that provides concrete recommendations for addressing gaps in the suicide prevention field.

This strategy addresses suicide at the national, state, tribal, local, and territorial levels and relies upon critical partnerships across the public and private sectors. To ensure effective actions are advanced in accordance with the Federal Action Plan, people with lived experience have been and remain critical to the implementation of this strategy.

The National Strategy focuses on the many factors associated with suicide, with the recognition that there is no single solution. The National Strategy is accompanied by the first-ever Federal Action Plan, which identifies more than 200 actions across the Federal government to be taken over the next three years in support of those goals.
