“Historically, communities have relied almost exclusively on clinical approaches to suicide prevention.  However, emerging evidence suggests that clinical care and crisis intervention should be complemented by many other approaches:  primary prevention, early intervention, research, public health surveillance, health promotion, media, training and education.  Indeed, suicide prevention can be integrated into the work of educators, healthcare providers, social service providers, juvenile justice workers, public safety workers, emergency room workers, faith community members, business owners, social service workers, youth service volunteers, and individuals.”
