Addressing the Intersection of Suicide, Overdose, and Adverse Childhood Experiences: What Is the Capacity of Local Health Departments?: Results from the National Fielding of the SPACECAT

Provides survey results from local health departments (LHDs) regarding their capacity to address suicide, overdose, and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Analyzes data from 101 LHDs that completed the Suicide, Overdose, and Adverse Childhood Experiences Prevention Capacity Assessment Tool (SPACECAT) from a sampling of small (serving 50,000 people or less), medium (serving 50,000-499,999 people), and large (serving 500,000 or more people) LHDs. Includes discussions centering around capacity issues such as networking and partnerships, strategic planning, staffing, data integration, and addressing concerns for at-risk populations.
