Tools for Practice Tuesday: #ZeroSuicide Toolkit

In honor of the ” International Zero Suicide in Healthcare Declaration” happening in Atlanta yesterday and today, I present the following resource.  The idea of Zero Suicide’s seems like lofty one but this goal requires a simple shift in thinking. All systems of care working together, sharing knowledge, and collaborating. As an advocate for behavioral and physical health integration, the notion of “Zero Suicide” is the perfect platform for this.

The Toolkit provides ways for leadership to assess the readiness of your system of care to train your workforce to better assess, engage, and treat suicidal thoughts.

Please share the “Zero Suicide Toolkit” widely!
