Planning strategically

So you’re ready to make a plan to bring your community together to address youth suicide. Where should you start? Developing an approach to address youth suicide should take place in the context of strategic action planning. This means taking the time to understand the issue you’re looking to address and clearly defining the goals for your plan. This will help you maximize your opportunities for success. Of course, it’s also important to ensure your plans are informed by evidence and best practices.
