Developed in collaboration with the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), this guide was designed to help public health practitioners produce suicide prevention materials for specific linguistic and cultural communities. The process described in this guide is based on work undertaken by CalMHSA to adapt suicide prevention materials for a variety of linguistic and cultural populations in California. It can be applied to many different formats, including print materials, television or radio public service announcements, and face-to-face presentations. Although this guide is about adapting rather than creating materials, much of it is also useful for the creation of new materials.
