Zero Suicide in Health and Behavioral Health Care
The most innovative suicide intervention initiatives made very similar cultural and system changes. They adopted a mission of zero suicide. They leveraged a safety and performance improvement culture toward suicide prevention. They trained the entire workforce, not just behavioral health clinicians, to intervene with and care for suicidal persons. They installed proven suicide assessment, intervention, treatment, and follow-up practices.
Zero Suicide Toolkit
The Zero Suicide Toolkit is a compilation of advice, resources, and tools from these groundbreaking initiatives and from the Clinical Care and Intervention Task Force of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention.
