Filetype[PDF-2.17 MB]

  • Description:
    "Suicide prevention is an important public health strategy. There are a number of factors that put people at higher or lower risk for suicide, many of which are related to the concept of connectedness. Connectedness is the degree to which an individual or group is socially close, interrelated, or shares resources with other individuals or groups. Connectedness occurs within and between multiple levels of the social ecology, that is between individuals, families, schools and other organizations, neighborhoods, cultural groups, and society as a whole. For more information on the research behind connectedness as a protective factor for suicide prevention, see CDC's Strategic Direction for Suicide Prevention (CDC, 2011)." - p. 1 2/21/2012: date from document properties.
