Zero Suicide in Health and Behavioral Health Care: Results of a State-Based Initiative

In 2014 the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, in partnership with the National Council for Behavioral Health, held a Breakthrough Series intended to provide individual and group coaching to help provider organizations and state systems accelerate Zero Suicide implementation. Each team included a state-level governmental agency and a provider; six teams were selected to participate.

Best Practices in Providing Suicide Safer Care in Health Care Settings

Health care providers see people at risk for suicide every day. But how do you know that you are providing safe, evidence-based treatments that work?  Does your staff truly feel comfortable and confident to work with this population?  Does your electronic health record reflect a clinical workflow for suicide care? This preconference session will focus on providing step-by-step evidence-based suicide care in health care settings from assessment to follow-up. Presenters who have done the work of making this change will share their successes and lessons learned.
