Mission Statement

The Penn Innovation in Suicide Prevention Implementation Research (INSPIRE) Center’s overarching goals are to develop, test and scale up: (1) Suicide prevention practices for minority and disenfranchised groups, and (2) Implementation strategies to bring evidence-based practices to scale efficiently and with high fidelity.  INSPIRE focuses on intervention and assessment practices that can be deployed rapidly in a range of practice settings, and in collaboration with community partners. In this way, INSPIRE’s interdisciplinary research team will transform approaches to suicide prevention.
