A Suicide Prevention and Postvention Toolkit for Texas Communities
The 2012 edition of this toolkit was designed with both the print reader and digital reader in mind; the layout has been altered to make it easy to read in any format, whether online, on a mobile device, or in print. Additionally, you will find that copies of paper documents, fact sheets and handouts have been replaced with direct hyperlinks embedded within the online version (and visible in the print version). By providing electronic access to these resources, the 2012 Texas Suicide Prevention and Postvention Toolkit facilitates the ability to access critical, most current information, tools and research efficiently and effectively.
This year’s edition also incorporates best practices resources, training and education materials made available from leading national organizations such as:
- American Association of Suicidoloy
- American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- Mental Health America
- National Alliance on Mental Illness
- National Institutes of Health
- National Institute of Mental Health
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
- Suicide Awareness Voices of Change
- Suicide Prevention Resource Center
- Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration
As we are all aware, suicide is a public health issue. By working together to facilitate change in our communities, we are confident we can make Texas a healthier and happier state for all.
