Service providers develop relationships and contacts with large numbers of families and individuals in the community, providing them with an important opportunity to identify and respond to the signs of suicide risk. This resource is aimed at agencies that do not have a primary role in supporting people at risk of suicide but may have contact with people at risk of suicide as part of their core business. While suicide risk is higher among some demographics than others, suicide affects everyone in our society. Everyone is responsible for identifying and responding to people at risk of suicide.
