The Sioux Falls VA Health Care System’s Suicide Prevention team is requesting your participation and help with the third iteration of our community awareness questionnaire pertaining to community awareness and perceptions surrounding suicide. Every six months, we will be collecting community awareness questionnaires in our communities to measure changes in awareness and stigma related to suicide over time.
Many of you completed previous survey requests, and we invite you to complete this survey again and also disseminate the survey to your personal networks for us to capture as much information as we can on the perceptions of this issue in our communities. The survey will be open until August 3rd and results will be shared afterwards in an aggregate report. Please find the survey link below:
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.
This questionnaire is validated, which means it is shown to be a reliable means of gathering information. The results of this questionnaire will help shape the Sioux Falls VA’s approach toward the Vision of reducing deaths by suicide to zero. Therefore, answering these questions is an important and meaningful way of getting involved. After all, preventing suicide is everyone’s business.
Thank you for your consideration and participation. Your input is appreciated and valuable.
