This is Recasting the Net: Promoting Wellness to Prevent Suicide in Alaska, the 2018-2022 statewide suicide prevention plan.
The plan is comprised of six overarching goals, several strategies for reaching each goal, helpful resources for individuals and communities related to achieving each goal, and measurable benchmarks to evaluate progress.
Goal 1: Alaskans Accept Responsibility for Preventing Suicide
Goal 2: Alaskans Prevent and Mitigate the Impact of Trauma, Substance Abuse, and Other Risk Factors Contributing to Suicide
Goal 3: Alaskans Communicate, Cooperate, and Coordinate Suicide Prevention Efforts
Goal 4: Alaskans Have Immediate Access to the Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery Services They Need
Goal 5: Alaskans Support Survivors in Healing
Goal 6: Quality Data and Research is Available and Used for Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation of Suicide Prevention Efforts
While many of the goals and strategies remain the same or similar in the 2018-2022 plan, others have been revised after careful consideration to better address the needs of Alaskans.
