Juvenile Justice - Suicide Prevention

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention released a set of comprehensive suicide prevention resources to support professionals who work with youth in the juvenile justice system. The newly developed educational tools, that provide standards for judges and court personnel, advance the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention, which guides efforts to prevent suicide across the nation. Online versions of the nine resources are now available to the juvenile justice workforce and the general public at the following websites:
These resources were developed by the Action Alliance’s Youth in Contact with the Juvenile Justice System Task Force, co-led by the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice (NCMHJJ) at Policy Research Associates, Inc. and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
