The Service Members, Veterans, and their Families Technical Assistance (SMVF TA) Center has developed a process to assemble and support interagency teams to prevent suicide among military and veteran families. These teams, which must commit to implementing the best suicide prevention policies and practices, are supported by the SMVF TA Center as they move from planning to implementation. The process recommends a diverse team composition for success and is tailored to the specific needs of each team.
