May 2023 - On average, more than 1,100 Virginians die by suicide each year.  To prevent suicide or self-harm, informed suicide prevention program planning is needed.   To this end, the Virginia Suicide Prevention Interagency Advisory Group (SPIAG) has prepared "SPAN SUICIDE PREVENTION ACROSS THE LIFESPAN: A 2023 PLAN FOR THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA"

“We can lower the rate of suicides in our communities by building connectivity, making sure people know how to help and what to look for and how to be there for someone. We need to educate people to let them know it is okay to reach out when they are concerned about someone.”
