The goal of the Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Program is to reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts among Massachusetts residents. We seek to raise awareness of suicide as a public health problem. The program provides support to community agencies, education and training for professionals and caregivers, and funds programs working with youth, veterans and older adults. We also support and encourage communities to collaborate across disciplines to prevent suicide and suicide attempts across the lifespan.
The Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Program is part of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) whose mission is to prevent illness, injury, and premature death, to assure access to high quality public health and health care services, and to promote wellness, and health equity. The DPH provides programs and services to address specific diseases and conditions affecting vulnerable populations. We also develop, implement, promote, and enforce policies to assure that the conditions under which people live are most conducive to health, enabling people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
