Lifespan suicide prevention plan
The Maine Suicide Prevention Program, led by the Maine CDC, is in the process of finalizing a five year plan to guide suicide prevention in Maine for citizens across the lifespan. With input from the MSPP Advisory Council and guided by the national suicide prevention strategy and research, a small work group has drafted a lifespan plan taking elements from two existing suicide prevention plans in Maine – one focused upon youth and one focused on adults.
The Maine CDC sought feedback and comments from Maine stakeholders. The stakeholder comment process introduced the draft plan widely to professional and public audiences and gained valuable feedback on feasibility, integration strategies, priorities and gaps for the program.
