"Suicide Prevention: An Emerging Priority for Health Care" by Michael F. Hogan and Julie Goldstein Grumet

This Health Affairs article discusses suicide as a significant public health problem and makes the case that suicide care must be a core priority in health care. Zero Suicide, a framework for better identification and treatment of patients at risk for suicide, incorporates new tools for screening, treatment, and support. The research outlined in the article points to the adoption of improved suicide prevention care as an effective strategy for reducing deaths by suicide.
