Preventing Suicide Is Everyone's Business
The mission of the Nevada
Office of Suicide Prevention is to reduce the rates of suicide and suicidal
acts in Nevada through statewide collaborative efforts to develop, implement
and evaluate a state strategy that advances the goals and objectives of the
National Strategy for Suicide Prevention.
It is our hope that
the Nevada Suicide Prevention Plan will provide a catalyst for collaborative
action, improved understanding and increased wellness in communities across
Nevada. This plan is based on the strong belief that everyone has a role to
play in suicide prevention, and those individuals and groups that address the
physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of individuals and
communities must work together if we are to be effective.
