Zero Suicide Featured on Diane Rehm Show

Zero Suicide faculty members Julie Goldstein Grumet, David Jobes, Brian Ahmedani, and Diana Cortez Yanez were guests on the Diane Rehm Show.

Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in the United States. But a group of psychiatrists and health care professionals is working to change this trend. They’ve launched an initiative that aims to reduce the number of suicides to zero. It sounds impossible, but a health system in Michigan is reporting impressive results. After overhauling the way it screens and treats patients, it reduced the number of suicides by 80 percent.
