A new national survey shows that 80% of Americans believe that suicide prevention should be a national priority as a result of the pandemic, and 52% report being more open to talking about mental health as a result of COVID-19.
To observe National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, National Suicide Prevention Week, and World Suicide Prevention Day, EDC is offering events, tips, and tools to help you take action to build resilience and prevent suicide.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded EDC a three-year grant to continue leading the STEM Learning and Research Center (STELAR), a national initiative to address STEM learning opportunity gaps, ignite interest in STEM, and prepare young people for future careers in STEM.
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) selected EDC to lead Opportunity 2.0, a five-year, $37.5 million project supporting out-of-school youth for better education, employment, and livelihood outcomes.
Through this new initiative, the Action Alliance will convene government agencies, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations to comprehensively and collectively address mental health and suicide prevention.
