We Need to Talk About Suicide

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased by 24 percent in the United States, making it the tenth leading cause of death–yet many remain reluctant to talk about it.

In Beacon’s third white paper, we share the application of the Zero Suicide framework, a key concept of the 2012 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention that suicide deaths for individuals under care within health and behavioral health systems are preventable.

Ultimately, the white paper asks us to rethink care for a condition that can, indeed, be prevented and treated. Read Beacon’s blog post on the subject and download our white paper, “We Need to Talk About Suicide.”

Follow along with Beacon clinical leaders as they share personal stories about suicide and discuss the Zero Suicide framework in a recent webinar on Beacon’s latest white paper.
