Creating Linguistically and Culturally Competent Suicide Prevention Materials

This guide is designed to help public health practitioners produce suicide prevention materials for specific cultural and linguistic communities. Developed in collaboration with the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), it is based on their work to adapt suicide prevention materials for a variety of cultural and linguistic populations in California. The guide contains key principles and steps as well as examples, tools, and resource lists. Although the guide is about adapting materials, much of it is also useful for creating new materials. The process described can be applied to many different formats, including print materials, television or radio public service announcements, and face-to-face presentations.
