Suicide Prevention and Postvention Services

Suicide prevention consists of a number of initiatives that together help reduce the risk of suicide.  Efforts to reduce this risk may happen at the individual, relationship, community, and society level.

Suicide can have long-lasting effects on individuals, families, and communities and therefore preventing suicide requires a systems approach. That is, it requires multi-factor strategies. This may include prevention and protective strategies as well as help and support for individuals, families, and communities who may have been exposed to suicide (postvention).
