Since January 2012, the CT Suicide Advisory Board (CTSAB) has functioned as the single state-level suicide advisory board in CT that addresses suicide prevention and response across the lifespan. It is cooperatively co-chaired by the CT Departments of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Children and Families (DCF), and is legislatively mandated under DCF.  The CTSAB is a network of diverse advocates, educators and leaders concerned with addressing the problem of suicide with a focus on prevention, intervention, and health and wellness promotion.
