• Reduce the incidence of reported suicidal ideation within the various identified, at-risk populations who aren’t receiving mental health care by a 10% increase in the health literacy of targeted gatekeeper audiences to recognize the signs of suicide risk and knowledge about referral to services by March of 2019.
