Public awareness is one of many activities laid out in Living Hope that together make up a comprehensive strategy for how suicide can be prevented.
The three goals of the plan are :
- Goal 1: To provide awareness and education that promotes positive mental health, reduces the stigma of suicide and provides an understanding of how to help someone considering suicide
- Goal 2: To ensure the whole continuum of services – prevention, intervention, postvention – is fully accessible
- Goal 3: To address the needs of higher risk populations
