  • How The Alliance and Oregon Legislature worked to provide hope, help, and heling to schools and respond to their needs around suicide prevention

LGBTQIA2S+ Youth and Suicide Public Comment Guide

The goal of this resource is to equip suicide prevention advocates with appropriate language and easy-to-access resources for providing public comment to support LGBTQIA2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual, twospirit) affirming policies and practices.

Input from Oregon Gun Owners on Firearm Safety and Suicide Prevention

The objective of this project is to better understand how firearm owners communicate about and practice firearm safety. This understanding is intended to inform how best to advance cultural norms around safe storage and reduce stigma around mental health safety planning.

 Alliance Policy Framework

The policy guide informs and support policy setting practices within the organization. Each year the members of the Alliance set an annual policy agenda to identify the focus of efforts for short term policy goals and inform longer term policy activities. This document serves as a guide for decision-making on short- and long term policy work as well as supports our role in advising OHA, advocating for suicide prevention and intervention strategies, and building an energized statewide network of suicide prevention coalitions. This is a living document and overtime will be updated.
