What is Zero Suicide?
Zero Suicide is a commitment to suicide prevention in health and mental health care systems. It involves the implementa- tion of a set of evidence-based tools and strategies used in a strong pathway of care for people who are suicidal. When implemented effectively, Zero Suicide reduces and even eliminates suicide deaths of those in our care.
