Lethal Means Stakeholder Group

The Action Alliance recently launched the Lethal Means Stakeholder Group that aims to advance goal 6 of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention: reduce access to lethal means for individuals at risk for suicide. The group consists of private and public groups that represent the following industries: 

  • bridges
  • firearms
  • landmarks
  • medication/pharmaceuticals 
  • poison (e.g. chemical, cleaning products, pesticides)
  • rail

In addition to having private sector representation, the Lethal Means Stakeholder Group also has public sector representation from the following federal groups:

  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Health and Human Services 
  • Department of Veterans Affairs

More information about this group will be coming soon.
