We Need to Talk About Suicide

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased by 24 percent in the United States, making it the 10th leading cause of death now. Yet, many remain reluctant to talk about it. In Beacon Health Options’ third white paper, Associate Chief Medical Officer Emma Stanton, MD, shares the application of the Zero Suicide framework from a payer perspective. 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.”

Watch a brief video introduction to the white paper by Beacon CEO Tim Murphy, who acknowledges the difficulty of the topic and the importance of discussing it.
