IMPROVING THE EVIDENCE BASE FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION INITIATIVES
Grant number: 1059261 | Funding period: 2014 - 2019
The burden of suicide persists partly because we don’t know what works and what doesn’t work in suicide prevention. Relatively little research effort has been invested in studies that can tell us how best to direct resources. The problem is compounded by a disconnect between researchers and decision-makers. Through this Fellowship, Jane Pirkis will develop and implement a model for working with decision-makers to generate the best possible evidence upon which to base suicide prevention policy.
