The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council is inviting the public to comment via survey on the updated 5-year State of Alaska Suicide Prevention Plan to be released March 1, 2023. The Council is statutorily obligated to develop and implement a statewide suicide prevention plan under Alaska Statute 44.29.350.

Suicide remains a significant public health issue in Alaska and public input and ideas from Alaskans will greatly help inform the planning process and the resulting state plan.  The survey will be active through the month of September.

For more information or if you have any questions please contact Eric Morrison at (907) 465-6518 or eric.morrison@alaska.gov.
