Suicide remains a major public health crisis and one of only three of the leading causes of death that are on the rise in the United States affecting those of every age, gender, and ethnic group. In 2020, suicide was responsible for more ~46,000 deaths, killing on average 13.5 individuals per 100,000 lives. Coupled with this tragedy is the fact that in 2020, 1.2 million Americans made a suicide attempt and more than 12.2 million adults seriously thought about suicide, with more than 3.2 million formulating a plan. There is a myriad of reasons why people take their life with recent estimates that more than half of people who die from suicide do not have a known mental disorder at the time of their death. Contributing factors to suicide include mental illness, relationship problems or losses, substance misuse, general health problems, housing, legal, occupational, firearm availability, and financial stress. Zero Suicide as a goal is now an international phenomenon, although few health systems utilize the same pathway to achieve that goal. The Henry Ford Zero Suicide program remains the most studied and the most successful program to date and once implemented saves lives.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
- Define the epidemiology of suicide.
- Describe the Henry Ford Zero Suicide Program.
- Demonstrate key elements of Zero Suicide that can be operationalized in your health care system.
