Tennessee Strategy for Suicide Prevention

Tennessee Strategy for Suicide Prevention


The Tennessee Strategy for Suicide Prevention builds upon the goals published in “National Strategy for Suicide Prevention: Goals and Objectives for Action” printed by the Department of Health and Human Services, United States Public Health Service, Rockville, MD, in 2001, and revised in 2012.

TSPN’s response to the National Strategy document was drafted in the fall of 2002 and revised in 2004, 2006, and 2007.  Following the revision of the National Strategy in 2012, a new version of the Tennessee Strategy was approved by TSPN’s Advisory Council on 2013, 2019, and revised most recently in 2022.
