The Florida Governor’s Challenge Five Star Suicide Prevention Program

Many Florida organizations are working to support ongoing suicide prevention efforts. The Florida Governor’s Challenge to Prevent Suicide Among Service Members, Veterans, and the Families Five Star Suicide Prevention Program seeks to bring these groups together. We believe that by working together, we can reach more people with education, training and resources. This is important for underserved communities and populations. To that end, we encourage you as individuals or organizations to join our Five Star Suicide Prevention Initiative. The program is simple and the more you do, the more Stars you achieve. America loves a Five-Star level establishment! Just sign up and following the program requirements below.
