Zero Suicide Data Dashboard Now Available

New Zero Suicide Data Dashboard Offers Precise Tracking of Suicide Prevention Goals

November 15, 2023

After a pilot period, the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard tool is now available to for all implementers.

The Zero Suicide Data Dashboard is a practical tool for healthcare organizations to set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely Zero Suicide goals. The Zero Suicide Data Dashboard is now available, providing a systematic approach to monitoring progress in the ongoing effort to provide safer suicide care.

This Dashboard serves as the first nationally accessible resource that tracks processes and outcomes that are related to the implementation of suicide-specific best practices in real-world care contexts.

The Rationale Behind the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard

The development of the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard was a response to a practical need: healthcare systems need a standardized way to track the progress of their Zero Suicide implementation efforts.

Developed from the existing Zero Suicide Data Elements Worksheet, this dashboard serves as a companion tool for the Zero Suicide Organizational Self-Study and the Zero Suicide Work Plan Template, resources made freely available on the Zero Suicide Toolkit at

As suicide prevention remains a paramount focus of healthcare and behavioral healthcare organizations, the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard is a valuable asset for organizations to help them make data-informed decisions and drive positive change in the realm of suicide care.

Zero Suicide Data Dashboard Pilot Project

Staff from six diverse healthcare systems, encompassing inpatient, outpatient, community behavioral health, emergency departments, and county-level health departments, participated in the pilot. All systems had some prior experience with the Zero Suicide framework.

Participants were provided with training on utilizing the Data Dashboard, including identifying user groups, accessing and interpreting data, and engaging leadership for quality improvement. Their positive feedback highlighted the Dashboard's ease of use and value in tracking best practices and performance comparisons.

Key Features of the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard

The Zero Suicide Data Dashboard enables organizations to input, amend, and oversee data related to their implementation of the various elements within the Zero Suicide framework.

The Zero Suicide Data Dashboard:

  • Contains all of the components of the Data Elements Worksheet and is accessible in a user-friendly online portal.
  • Reflects key metrics that systems should use to monitor fidelity to the Zero Suicide framework.
  • Displays and summarizes data for multiple groups within an organization over time.

Getting Started with the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard

Follow the link below to access the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard portal. With step-by-step directions and easy-to-understand resources, the database provides organizations with a way to track and communicate progress on Zero Suicide implementation goals consistently and with confidence.

For best results, data should be submitted to an organizational account managed by a single admin. See below for an overview. More detailed instructions are available in the portal.

Account Setup

Please note that you will need to create a user account specific to the Dashboard. It is recommended that organizations designate a single Organizational Admin to take the lead on setting up your organization on the Zero Suicide Dashboard. This admin may be an individual, team member, or team manager. 

The Organizational Admin will be instructed to create one or more groups for your organization. This will allow your organization to distinguish among different providers or service lines (i.e., an organization that wants to track Zero Suicide data for outpatient clinics at two separate locations). Additional groups can be created later in the data collection process as well. 

The Organizational Admin will also be tasked with inviting team members to your organization's data dashboard either as organizational admins or general users.

Data Entry

Once the Organization, Groups, and Members are set up under the organizational dashboard account, both admins and general users will be free to submit data to the dashboard on behalf of their group.

The first time a member of a group enters data, they will be asked to set up which of the nine Zero Suicide metrics they wish to track. This process may take a few minutes and is best determined by the group in advance.

It’s recommended that organizations enter data into the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard quarterly to celebrate implementation successes and identify areas for improvement.
