Advancing Research To Prevent Youth Suicide: Federal Partners Meeting Report for the Pathways to Prevention Workshop

This report from the NIH Office of Disease Prevention is the culmination of a two-year effort by the NIH to identify activities that could be effective in preventing suicidal thoughts and behaviors as early as possible and to assist in identifying future research needs. The report identifies key next steps and opportunities for collaboration across federal agencies, including: create a national workgroup focused on key issues relating to youth suicide with member organizations (both public and private) from the local to the national level; identify, compile, and integrate existing datasets with data on youth suicide risk/preventive factors to enable further secondary analyses; and develop improved experimental designs, data harmonization, and analytical techniques for examining youth suicide risk/protective factors.
