NCCHC's Suicide Prevention Resource Guide

NCCHC and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention have teamed up to create a guide to preventing inmate suicide in jails and prisons. Based on both organizations’ expertise, with input from national experts in the field of correctional mental health and suicide prevention, this resource provides a road map for navigating the complexities of suicide prevention behind bars – and can help save lives. The Suicide Prevention Resource Guide is now available for download.
