Hear from two suicide prevention experts who are utilizing the Community-Led Suicide Prevention (CLSP) Toolkit. You’ll get a close-up look at how the CLSP Toolkit and CLSP Strategic Planning Worksheet supported efforts of the Franklin County Suicide Prevention Coalition in Ohio, which is hosted by Mental Health America of Ohio and funded by the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County.


Developed by EDC with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with the Safe States Alliance, the CLSP Toolkit is inspired by The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Transforming Communities report and CDC’s Suicide Prevention Resource for Action.


The toolkit provides a step-by-step process to help communities create and reach suicide prevention goals. It focuses on seven key elements: 1) Unity, 2) Data, 3) Planning, 4) Fit, 5) Integration, 6) Communication, and 7) Sustainability.
