U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Cooperative Agreements to Implement Zero Suicide in Health SystemsDeadline: July 18, 2017
The Cooperative Agreements to Implement Zero Suicide in Health Systems (Zero Suicide) model is a comprehensive, multi-setting approach to suicide prevention in health systems. The purpose of the program is to implement suicide prevention and intervention programs, for individuals who are 25 years of age or older, that are designed to raise awareness of suicide, establish referral processes, and improve care and outcomes for such individuals who are at risk for suicide. Grantees will implement the Zero Suicide model throughout their health system. Health systems that do not provide direct care services may partner with agencies that can implement the Zero Suicide model. For communities without well-developed behavioral health care services, the Zero Suicide model may be implemented in Federally Qualified Health Centers or other primary care settings.
