Document Title: Alaska Suicide Postvention Guide from the Department of Health and Social Services
User:
AlaskaAdmin

The Alaska Suicide Postvention Guide provides information communities can use to prepare an action plan in case of a suicide, so they can reduce the risk of more suicides, and help community members heal.

The guide explains what is usual to expect after a suicide, lists some common mistakes to avoid and some steps to take, and helps you identify who will take those steps.
This is a planning tool. It will be up to the people who live in each community to make a plan, and act on that plan.

Contact James Gallanos, james.gallanos@alaska.gov, for printed copies of the guide and more information about postvention trainings.
