Focus Groups

A key aspect of the Florida LEADS Project involves developing a suicide prevention social awareness campaign to inform and encourage adults at risk for suicide to seek help. To ensure our messages and the content we create is relevant, useful, and culturally sensitive for adults at risk of suicide in the state of Florida, we need to conduct focus groups with input from our target audiences.
