Create specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely Zero Suicide goals with the new Zero Suicide Data Dashboard.
Track your system's progress through measurable data.
Built from the same components as the Zero Suicide Data Elements Worksheet, the Data Dashboard can be used in conjunction with the Zero Suicide Organizational Self-Study and your Zero Suicide Work Plan to determine what changes have been made in care due to interventions in training and policies.
Data Elements Dashboard
Similar to the Zero Suicide Data Elements Worksheet, the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard is intended to assist health and behavioral health care organizations in developing a data-driven, quality improvement approach to suicide care. The original Zero Suicide Data Elements Worksheet is still available as a resource.
The Data Dashboard goes beyond the Data Elements Worksheet in that it allows organizations to enter, edit, and monitor their data specific to their implementation of the Zero Suicide framework.
Data Dashboard users can tailor how they set up the Dashboard to ensure that the data they enter reflects how their organization’s specific care improvements affect client outcomes over time.
The Zero Suicide Data Dashboard:
- Contains all of the components of the Data Elements Worksheet and is accessible in a user-friendly online portal.
- Reflects key metrics that systems should use to monitor fidelity to the Zero Suicide framework.
- Displays and summarizes data for multiple groups within an organization over time.

How to Use
Follow the link below to access the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard portal. With step-by-step directions and easy-to-understand resources, the database provides organizations with a way to track and communicate progress on Zero Suicide implementation goals consistently and with confidence.
For best results, data should be submitted to an organizational account managed by a single admin. See below for an overview. More detailed instructions are available in the portal.
Please note that you will need to create a user account specific to the Dashboard. It is recommended that organizations designate a single Organizational Admin to take the lead on setting up your organization on the Zero Suicide Dashboard. This admin may be an individual, team member, or team manager.
The Organizational Admin will be instructed to create one or more groups for your organization. This will allow your organization to distinguish among different providers or service lines (i.e., an organization that wants to track Zero Suicide data for outpatient clinics at two separate locations). Additional groups can be created later in the data collection process as well.
The Organizational Admin will also be tasked with inviting team members to your organization's data dashboard either as organizational admins or general users.
Once the Organization, Groups, and Members are set up under the organizational dashboard account, both admins and general users will be free to submit data to the dashboard on behalf of their group.
The first time a member of a group enters data, they will be asked to set up which of the nine Zero Suicide metrics they wish to track. This process may take a few minutes and is best determined by the group in advance.
It’s recommended that organizations enter data into the Zero Suicide Data Dashboard quarterly to celebrate implementation successes and identify areas for improvement.
