Title of Collaborative Activity:

Suicide Mortality Surveillance

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Through the Suicide Mortality Surveillance project, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will develop and refine a rapid suicide mortality surveillance system. Monitoring the trends in cause-specific mortality is critical for identifying emerging public health problems and in generating evidence for health policy development, implementation, and evaluation. Timely information is important for monitoring severity of the disease or condition, allocating resources, and facilitating preventive and control programs. The results from this study will yield valuable information about the validity, feasibility, and timeliness of the enhanced vital statistics system for rapid suicide surveillance.
