Hosted by Zero Suicide Initiative Coordinating Center.
The Zero Suicide Academy is a two-day training for senior leaders of health and behavioral health care organizations that seek to dramatically reduce suicides among patients in their care. Using the Zero Suicide framework, participants learn how to incorporate best and promising practices into their organizations and processes to improve care and safety for individuals at risk. Zero Suicide faculty provide both interactive presentations and small group sessions, collaborating with participants to develop organization-specific action plans.
The objectives of the Zero Suicide Academy are to:
» Provide organizations interested in adopting a Zero Suicide approach with the skills and information necessary to launch their effort;
» Create collaborative links between the organizations launching these initiatives in order to provide mentorship and support so that the perspectives, knowledge, and skills of each inform the work of the others; and
» Aid in developing implementation plans for the Zero Suicide initiatives at each participating organization.
