Communities and Coalitions

A key strategy of New York State’s multifaceted approach to suicide prevention is creating suicide safer communities. In New York State, county suicide prevention coalitions are a driving force for suicide safer communities. Almost every county in the state has a coalition or task force that brings together key stakeholders to develop and implement suicide prevention plans that are unique to their community.

There are several resources available to the community and coalitions to prevent suicide.

Schools & Colleges

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth ages 10-14 and 15-24. Because youth spend a large proportion of their time in school, schools play a central role in New York State’s effort to prevent suicide.

Providers & Healthcare Systems

New York State has received national recognition for its work integrating suicide prevention into health and behavioral health systems. As called for in the State Suicide Prevention Plan, we set out to systematically support health systems in reducing suicide deaths among those receiving care—beginning with settings that care for those most at-risk.

Our evolving approach, refined over the course of implementing several large, federal suicide prevention grants, is called AIM for Zero.
