Module 3: Bringing equity to suicide prevention: How can we support communities at elevated risk of suicide?
Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their full health potential and that no one is disadvantaged, excluded, or dismissed from achieving this potential. Health equity emphasizes shifts in power and systems and requires the removal of systemic obstacles to health for groups that are more likely to experience health inequities, such as communities of color. This module explores how communities can apply national trend data, local surveillance data, and data-informed, community-driven strategies to support equitable suicide prevention planning.
Understand recent national trends and identify communities at elevated risk for suicide.
