First-Ever National Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention
The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Research Prioritization Task Force (RTF) is tasked with developing a national research agenda aimed at identifying research pathways to reduce morbidity and mortality by at least 20% in 5 years and 40% or greater in 10 years, if fully implemented. The RPTF is happy to announce that A Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention: An Action Plan to Save Lives has now been made public and can be accessed electronically at www.suicide-research-agenda.org. SAVE played a lead role with the Task Force in developing this national plan for suicide prevention research and hope that this Agenda will help move the field forward and to save lives!

A SAVE Named Memorial is a memorial established to honor and/or remember someone who has lost his or her life through suicide. You can establish a SAVE Named Memorial in remembrance of a loved one or a very special friend.
This lasting legacy can be designated to a specific SAVE purpose and insures that critical SAVE programs will continue to be financially supported. Gifts can continually be added to an established Named Memorial. A letter will be sent informing the person or family of the gift to the fund.
