Zero Suicide in Health and Behavioral Health

by

Pioneer health systems (e.g., Henry Ford Health System) demonstrate that when a health system embraces suicide prevention as a core responsibility of care, lives are saved.

The National Strategy for Suicide Prevention calls for our nation’s health systems to strive for zero suicides. Providing evidence-based practices resulting in safer care to all patients should be the norm — not the exception.

Zero Suicide is a performance improvement approach that reduces suicides, and its wide-scale adoption is a priority of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention — the nation’s public-private partnership championing suicide prevention as a national priority.

Dr. Jerry Reed, Senior Vice President, EDC; Executive Committee, National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention; and Ms. Colleen Carr, Deputy Director, National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention
