There is a growing need for upstream suicide prevention in schools as well as guidance for program implementation that can maximize effectiveness and sustainability. This chapter highlights the benefits of using an implementation science framework to guide partnerships between schools, community partners, and healthcare organizations to enhance youth suicide prevention efforts. Examples illustrating this approach using the PAX Good Behavior Game and the Signs of Suicide Prevention Program (SOS) are described. Finally, policy implications and future directions are discussed.
