  • Suicide is a particularly big problem in rural communities.

  • In western North Carolina and Appalachia, we are certainly in

  • a rural area.

  • We know that the suicide rates continue to steadily climb.

  • They are especially problematic for young people.

  • We've got to do something.

  • The Injury-Free NC Academy is our workforce development

  • initiative in North Carolina.

  • And we held a session to focus on suicide prevention to enable

  • teams from communities that were interested and ready to address

  • suicide to help them advance their work in their community.

  • So CDC's core injury funding is a foundational funding

  • for our program.

  • The Core Injury Funding Program helps us establish a base

  • to be able to work with a very wide range and diverse

  • group of partners.

  • CDC supported the Injury-Free Academy,

  • and that really served as the genesis for the CALM program.

  • CALM stands for Counseling on Access to Lethal Means.

  • It's a relatively new approach to more traditional forms of

  • suicide prevention, and it focuses around reducing

  • people's access to the most dangerous methods of suicide

  • when they're in crisis.

  • They're doing great work in the state.

  • We would not have had that program in North Carolina

  • if it hadn't been for the academy experience.

  • Injury Prevention, CDCÕs Injury Center.

  • The Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program

  • partnership with the Injury Control Research Centers

  • is critical so that we can generate knowledge that helps to

  • advance the field of injury and violence prevention.

  • These partners bring different perspectives,

  • and both are critically important.

  • So, we need to have that big-picture view of

  • what is working, what the research tells us,

  • but we also need that practical side of it.

  • And our practitioners know what's likely to work

  • in their region.

  • They know what the priorities are of the populations that

  • we're really trying to address with these groups.

  • And it's critical that both research is informing practice

  • and that practice is informing research.

  • The Injury Control Research Center funding that we receive

  • from CDC allows us to do so much more

  • to do a study that actually has an impact and to take the

  • information that we create from our research and distribute it

  • to the community so that they can use it.

  • I have no doubt that lives have been saved through this.

  • I think it really sets the tone for establishing, you know,

  • evidence-based practices that fundamentally,

  • not just to start the process, but to sustain it.

  • It's all about safety.

  • And I think everyone can get behind that.
