Lifeline Service and Outreach Strategies Suggested by Suicide Attempt Survivors. Final Report of the Attempt Survivor Advisory Summit Meeting and Individual Interviews
Macro International Inc.
In June 2006, the Steering Committee of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network identified better outreach & service to suicide attempt survivors as a strategy for reducing suicide nationally. A workplan identified direct input from survivors as a necessary & valuable method for clarifying their unique needs. Attempt survivors shared their experiences & perspectives at a meeting in January 2007; others participated through indepth phone interviews. This report summarizes the findings from both the meeting & interviews. Because data collection methods were substantially different, the findings from each are presented separately. Common themes are presented in the final section.
