In Suicide Care Insights: Stories & Tips for Your Implementation, Zero Suicide Institute identified six topics related to workforce wellbeing and how safe suicide care can transform organizational culture. We present them as a series of six resources using a mixed-media approach. Three of the resources are in the form of recorded stories. The other three are downloadable tips on how and what to implement to support and improve care for patients. Zero Suicide implementers inspired by the series are invited to share their own experiences and insights.
