Utah Suicide Prevention Plan
Suicide affects the lives of hundreds of Utah families each year. In 2006, the State Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health contracted with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Utah), to develop a comprehensive state plan for all ages that represents the cultural diversity of Utah.
The plan was created by a Suicide Prevention Council that consisted of experts in the fields of social work, psychology, research, substance abuse, health and medicine, law enforcement, educators, clergy, representatives from various ethnic and culturally diverse groups, family members and youth.
