Our hope is to help make the implementation of Adi’s Act a smooth process by sharing the included resources that already exist and to provide an overview of available documents to help you walk through this process.
Annette Marcus, AOCMHP Suicide Prevention Policy Manager, wrote an article in 2019 that discusses youth suicide in Oregon. This article discusses the following points:
- Youth Suicide data in Oregon from 2019
- Data collected from schools on how they felt about their school’s suicide prevention practices
- How The Alliance and Oregon Legislature worked to provide hope, help, and heling to schools and respond to their needs around 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.
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.
