A project of the University of Rochester Medical Center and Education Development Center, the ICRC-S draws suicide prevention directly into the domain of public health and injury prevention and links it to complementary approaches to mental health.

The University of Michigan Injury Center works closely with faculty across many disciplines, with regional education and public health partners, and in close coordination with the CDC, to generate and share new findings about injury prevention that can impact both policy and individual behavior.  Our work encompasses both intentional injury and unintentional injury.
