- Identify health inequities and focus efforts on supporting those in greatest need within their communities
- Develop and adopt a strategic plan to tackle the intersection of suicide, overdose, and ACEs
- Identify and select evidence-based strategies to strengthen the prevention response, identifying adaptations, if needed, for the communities’ cultural context and readiness for change
