CCAT Study Group

In the SSOSPC Initiative: Community Coalition Action Theory (CCAT) Study Group, suicide prevention coalition leaders will participate in a series of virtual Learning Community meetings and a book club-style study group to learn about and apply the CCAT to their own coalitions. From the work of Dr. Fran Butterfoss, the CCAT offers a roadmap for coalition leaders to develop and strengthen their coalition’s infrastructure, thereby increasing their coalition’s impact on the community and local suicide rates.
