Join us on Tuesday, May 26, at 12:30 p.m. ET for a webinar to learn how a comprehensive approach that includes laws and policies can be used to prevent suicide.

The webinar will highlight how an evidence-based approach can be taken to reduce suicides in communities, which includes working with partners and various sectors to address the broader social determinants of health while also leveraging legal and policy tools.

You’ll hear from leading public health, suicide prevention, and policy experts, government representatives, and community partners about how they’ve addressed the role of social determinants in preventing suicide. Given the considerable progress that partners have made over the past decade to achieve Healthy People 2020 suicide prevention-related objectives, we’ll also discuss how these valuable lessons learned can help drive action over the next decade with Healthy People 2030.

About the Law and Health Policy Project

The goal of the Healthy People Law and Health Policy project is to highlight how evidence-based legal and policy interventions and strategies can facilitate progress toward Healthy People objectives by improving community health and well-being. In addition to reports and webinars, the project includes “Bright Spots,” or success stories, that highlight successful policy interventions that have led to improved health outcomes.

The project is a collaboration between the HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
