Lead | Community ResourcesZEST Toolkit for Suicide Safer Care Centers

The ZEST toolkit is intended to provide guidance and support to community behavioral health centers in Texas to implement the zero suicide framework. The toolkit outlines goals for each core component and provides tools and resources to guide implementation activities. The toolkit remains under development and additional tools and resources will be added as they are developed. Please note, the ZEST toolkit does not reflect all possible suicide safe care best practices, but rather incorporates the goals identified for DSHS-funded mental health providers.
