The Center for Suicide Prevention and Research (CSPR) at Nationwide Children's Hospital was created in 2015 to address the growing problem of suicide among youth in central Ohio.
The Center for Suicide Prevention and Research is a joint partnership with Big Lots Behavioral Health Services and the Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's.
The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services engaged Nationwide Children's Hospital and the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University to create tools that could assist reporters and editors. The result includes the resources below and a series of workshops at six Ohio colleges during Spring 2017.
