  • Data: Use new and existing data to better understand, monitor, and prevent suicide and suicidal behavior
  • Science: Identify risk and protective factors and effective policies, programs, and practices for suicide prevention in populations at increased risk for suicide
  • Action: Build the foundation for CDC's National Suicide Prevention Program
  • Collaboration: Develop and implement wide-reaching partnership and communication strategies to raise awareness and advance suicide prevention activities
