The current 9-1-1 Suicide Prevention Standard published by NENA is due for revision. The NENA Suicide Prevention Working Group is, therefore, resuming soon. This will be an important revision process since several changes are needed to assure best possible care for those 9-1-1 callers at imminent risk of suicide. This standard will pursue inclusion of critical information about Crisis Text Line, terms for optimizing collaboration with National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other accredited crisis call centers, and other changes. 9-1-1 professionals and mental health professionals are urged to join with other stakeholders as members of the working group to update this standard.
