A Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention: An Action Plan to Save Lives

National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, 2014

The Research Prioritization Task Force (RPTF) was created to develop a research agenda which, if fully implemented, would provide multiple, research-informed approaches that will lead to a reduction in suicide attempts and deaths. This agenda will advance the suicide prevention efforts of the Action Alliance (National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, 2013a). This document summarizes the work undertaken by the RPTF to identify the research steps and methods that reflect the thinking of experts and organizations working to reduce suicide. This document describes research methods that Thomas Insel, MD, director of NIMH and co-lead of the RPTF, described as essential to “bend the curve of suicide rates and ensure that suicide deaths decrease dramatically in the next decade” (Insel, 2011).
