Two-Year Biannual Plan to Governor due June 1, 2017 (Executive Order 01.01.2009.13).

In October 2009, the Governor formed the Maryland Commission on Suicide Prevention (Executive Order 01.01.2009.13). The Commission is devising a statewide plan for suicide prevention and intervention, and post-suicide services for individuals and their families. For those who survive or attempt suicide and their families, the Commission will compile a list of support systems.

The Commission promotes a coordinated, collaborative and comprehensive effort by State and local agencies to ensure the best use of resources for the delivery of a continuum of services to prevent, intervene in, or recover from suicide. In addition, the Commission is to identify and review the impact of suicide on the health and well-being of Maryland citizens; the economic and social costs of suicide; and effective and efficient practices in the organization and delivery of services to those affected by suicide.

In September 2012, the Commission submitted to the Governor its initial two-year plan for suicide prevention.
