  • The goal of the Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Program is to reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts among Massachusetts residents. We seek to raise awareness of suicide as a public health problem. The Program provides support to community agencies, education and training for professionals and caregivers, and funds programs working with youth, veterans and older adults. Data guides the program in identifying populations and geographic areas of the state that need assistance. We also support and encourage communities to collaborate across disciplines to prevent suicide and suicide attempts across the lifespan.
