WHO publishes "Preventing Suicide: a community engagement toolkit"

"Communities can play a critical role in suicide prevention. Facilitating community engagement in suicide prevention is an important task. The toolkit is a step-by-step guide for communities to engage in suicide prevention activities and have ownership of the process and keep efforts sustained. It is hoped that the pilot version will be used, after necessary adaptation, in many countries and contexts, so that the final product can be strengthened and become more effective and user-friendly." (WHO)

The EAAD is delighted to be mentioned several times in this very relevant document and our team had the chance to be included in the reviewing process!
