Alliance and Suicide Prevention Lab

Suicide Prevention Initiatives

Cultural Competence

This aim focuses on enhancing the capacity to promote, implement, and evaluate culturally competent, evidence-based and promising behavioral health prevention programs, practices, and communication strategies. The goal is to raise public awareness about mental health and substance use disorders, youth suicide prevention and wellness, and help-seeking and recovery in a way that encompasses those of all cultural and religious backgrounds. Every effort is made to embed elements of this aim across all trainings and program initiatives implemented.
