What is Zero Suicide?

Zero Suicide operationalizes the core components of safer suicide care as seven elements. The seven elements of Zero Suicide represent what experts in the field of suicide prevention have identified as the core components of safe care for individuals with suicidal thoughts and urges. They represent a holistic approach to suicide prevention within health and behavioral health care systems.

The seven elements are:

  1. Lead system-wide culture change committed to reducing suicides
  2. Train a competent, confident, and caring workforce
  3. Identify patients with suicide risk via comprehensive screenings
  4. Engage all individuals at-risk of suicide using a suicide care management plan
  5. Treat suicidal thoughts and behaviors using evidence-based treatments
  6. Transition individuals through care with warm hand-offs and supportive contacts
  7. Improve policies and procedures through continuous quality improvement
