Media Messaging Workgroup

This Action Alliance group brings together influential communication leads from our national partners to develop coordinated and consistent messages about suicide prevention. The group is dedicated to ensuring that the suicide prevention field coordinates its efforts to ensure that all messages:

  • Are developed and delivered in a coordinated, consistent, and timely way
  • Help promote hope and help-seeking (and are aligned with the Framework for Successful Messaging)
  • Educate the public about available services, resources, and supports

The Action Alliance convenes the group as needed to respond to data releases, new research, and other events that would benefit from a coordinated response.

Joint statements issued by this group include:
