This guide was created by the American Association of Suicidology and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, in partnership with Crisis Care Network and the Carson J Spencer Foundation. The guide provides clear steps for postvention, giving leadership a sense of how to immediately respond to the traumatic event, have a plan in the short-term for recovery, and consider long-term strategies for helping employees cope down the line.
