Zero Suicide provides a practical framework to help support a system-wide focus on safer suicide care, even in these challenging times. Though every health care system is different and may be at varying points in their Zero Suicide journey as well as their COVID-19 response needs, the Zero Suicide elements allow systems to prioritize and focus on the unique needs of their organization at this time while continuing to provide effective, evidence-based suicide care for patients. This resource provides recommendations based on the seven elements of Zero Suicide for priority action steps during this pandemic.
