The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention Framework for Successful Messaging is based on input from many different individuals and groups from the suicide prevention, mental health, and communications fields.
Jack Benson, Mark Weber, and the rest of the Project Team are grateful for the time, expertise, and insights shared by the following individuals and organizations.
A group of experts in suicide prevention communications participated in a one-day in-person meeting in January 2013 to provide input for a strategy to advance the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention priority to “change the public conversation about suicide.” The Framework for Successful Messaging is one product that had its roots in that meeting.
The Framework Project Team held a series of presentations and briefings in 2013 to present background research and receive input on the field’s needs regarding public messaging about suicide. We thank participants from the following organizations and events:
A special thanks to Reingold, Inc. for donating the services of their talented design team to create the Framework graphic.
