1) Empower and engage community-wide stakeholders in Zero Suicide strategies, evidence-based practices, and lessons learned.
2) Facilitate connections between substance misuse and suicide prevention stakeholders and programs to advance effective prevention strategies.
3) Share community-based approaches to suicide prevention including new ways to form innovative collaborations.
