We fund research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
The goal of the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) is to understand and prevent suicide.
CDC’s Injury Center is committed to saving lives, protecting people, and lowering the health and societal costs of violence and injuries. Our goal is to offer individuals, communities, and states timely, accurate information and useful tools and resources to keep people safe where they live, work, play, and learn.
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it does build mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness.
Our vision is for Mental Health First Aid to become as common as CPR and First Aid training. That means having regular courses offered in every community across the US.
