“Suicide can be prevented...
Just as suicide is not caused by a single factor, research suggests that reductions in suicide will not be prevented by any single strategy or approach. Rather, suicide prevention is best achieved by a focus across the individual, relationship, family, community, and societal-levels and across all sectors, private and public.”
– U.S. Office of the Surgeon General, National Alliance for Suicide Prevention, 2012
