National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (Available 24 Hours)
Zero Suicide is an improvement model that transforms systemwide suicide prevention and care to save lives. Zero Suicide is several things: an aspirational goal designed to catalyze transformational change; a suicide-care model with specific practices for health systems to employ; and, a movement seeking to make health care settings safer and more compassionate for people with suicidal thoughts and urges. Health care systems and leaders design for a zero-based mindset by changing the culture around suicide prevention and care.
Marshfield Clinic Health System is a member of the Zero Suicide initiative. The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide is preventable. For systems dedicated to improving patient safety, Zero Suicide presents an aspirational challenge and practical framework for system-wide transformation toward safer suicide care.
