Prevent Firearm Suicide

Suicide is a public health crisis. Firearms are the most lethal and most commonly used suicide method in the United States. A multilevel approach for suicide prevention that addresses access to firearms can save lives. There are effective, evidence-based interventions for firearm suicide prevention. Our approach organizes these interventions by applying the social ecological model. We focus on four levels of intervention (societal, community, relationship, and individual) to reduce access to firearms by individuals when they are at an elevated risk for suicide.
