SAMHSA has partnered with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to bring the Governor’s and Mayor’s Challenges to Prevent Suicide Among Service Members, Veterans, and their Families to states and communities across the Nation. For the Governor’s Challenge, 35 states are taking part in the challenge and are working to develop and implement state-wide suicide prevention best practices for SMVF, using a public health approach. For the Mayor’s Challenge, 22 communities were originally engaged as part of the challenge. Currently, 19 Mayor’s Challenge teams are actively participating, seventeen of the communities are within participating Governor’s Challenge states and one of which was added in 2021. SAMHSA’s SMVF TA Center is providing technical assistance for both of these initiatives.
