Benefits of tools
The Suicide Prevention Chart Guide will help your organization create a diagram outlining key information and procedures to follow when responding to suicide risk. The Gatekeeper Action Plan Discussion Guide facilitates conversation and a collective understanding among managers and front-line staff about expectations and action plans for ongoing suicide prevention.
A key leader or upper-level manager can develop a suicide prevention chart in as little as hour. However, staff should be included in the process whenever possible--with staff input the process may take 2-4 hours. The Gatekeeper Action Plan Discussion should take 90 to 120 minutes to complete.
