The Division of Suicide Prevention is implementing activities that advance the following one-to-three-year goals:
Goal 1: Develop a logic plan and work plan to guide and evaluate Division activities.
Goal 2: Increase awareness of the Division to local and state-level funders and secure foundation funding for Division efforts.
Goal 3: Grow the staff of the Division to provide research, evaluation, and grant writing support for Division initiatives.
Goal 4: Develop and deploy a statewide database for the collection and analysis of data that emerges from suicide review teams.
Goal 5: Together with the City of Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention, conduct a deep-dive analysis into suicides in the Black and Brown communities in Milwaukee, to inform culturally relevant suicide prevention activities, and disseminate the findings of this work back to the community.
Goal 6: Along with Milwaukee Suicide Review Commission partners, develop and implement a suicide crisis response team to respond to individuals in the community who are at-risk for suicide, and to provide postvention support to survivors of suicide loss.
Goal 7: Apply for NIH funding to support state-level research and program implementation related to suicide prevention.
