    In 2015, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention launched its Project 2025 is a high-impact, collaborative initiative developed by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, aimed at achieving the organization’s bold goal of reducing the annual suicide rate in the U.S. 20 percent by 2025. The idea for the Suicide Prevention Resource Guide was conceived in August 2017 in a conference room in Chicago, where a group of mental health experts convened with National Commission on Correctional Health Care leadership for the inaugural Suicide Prevention Summit. The gathered participants were remarkable not only because of their collective expertise, but also because they were, in many ways, competitors, representing five major providers of correctional health care services. They came together determined to find solutions to a problem common to all correctional facilities. They discussed the complexities of suicide in corrections, shared their challenges and insights, considered possible process improvements, and discussed other ideas for keeping suicidal inmates safe. Most importantly, they agreed to keep meeting, collaborating and problem-solving. The result is this Suicide Prevention Resource Guide, representing the collective knowledge of countless experts. The guide includes insight into assessing suicide risk, promising practices and guidelines for treating at-risk individuals, and guidance on developing a training curriculum – all through the lens of working with justice-involved patients within a correctional setting.


    During this session, we’ll discuss:

    • Learn ways to  reduce risk before it becomes a crisis
    • Understand suicide risks and warning signs specific to incarcerated populations
    • Focus on three areas key to suicide prevention
    • Develop solutions that can effect real change
