- Provide organizations interested in adopting a Zero Suicide approach with the skills and information necessary to launch their effort;
- Create collaborative links between the organizations launching these initiatives in order to provide mentorship and support so that the perspectives, knowledge, and skills of each inform the work of the others; and
