Zero Suicide, a champion effort of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, operates on the fundamental belief that "suicide deaths for individuals under care within health and behavioral health systems are preventable."

Zero Suicide seeks to achieve its mission by offering a toolkit to health care systems that would create a systematic approach to catching those patients who "fall through cracks in a fragmented, and sometimes distracted, health care system." The toolkit addresses seven fundamental elements of suicide care for health care systems to adopt.

While it may seem that the initiative is geared towards health care organizations, it offers several helpful resources for individuals. This includes access to seminars, newsletters, and access to in-person training/information sessions.

If you or someone you know is at risk for suicide, seek help as soon as possible by calling the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
