About Zero Suicide Healthcare
Led by hospital and healthcare leaders, the Zero Suicide framework standardises the approach to suicide management. It supports you to:
introduce robust policies and procedures
implement high quality frontline training
proactively engage others to ensure the safety of people with suicidal behaviours.
The US based Education Development Centre and its Suicide Prevention Resource Centre developed the toolkit for the Zero Suicide model. For access to the extensive range of resources in this toolkit visit zerosuicide.com

Care pathways are recovery-oriented
Warm transitions mean no person falls through the cracks.
Those who work in a Zero Suicide organisation are trained and competent and confident to work with people who are suicidal.
