A Simple Emergency Room Intervention Can Help Cut Suicide Risk

Zero Suicide Institute director Julie Goldstein-Grumet is quoted in this article by NPR discussing the evidence-based need for safety planning in emergency room settings. "People often fall off and they don't follow up on their referrals," Goldstein-Grumet says. "And the times during these transitions from acute care settings is one of the highest risk times of suicides."
