The Suicide Prevention Center of New York (SPCNY) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) Suicide Prevention Office divide their work into four main areas:
- Zero Suicide in Health and Behavioral Health Settings
- Suicide Safer Communities
- Suicide Safer Schools, Colleges, and Universities
- Surveillance and Data-Informed Suicide Prevention
In 2016, SPCNY and OMH released 1700 Too Many: New York State’s Suicide Prevention Plan. This plan provides a detailed description of New York State’s strategy for suicide prevention. Compliance and field office staff help to carry out various activities. A few key projects and initiatives are described below.
