ZERO SUICIDE ACADEMY, FOR SUBSTANCE USE TREATMENT PROVIDING ORGANIZATIONS

Applications are due on May 8th at 5pm EST. Application materials should be submitted via the Zero Suicide website. 

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health Suicide Prevention Program is pleased to invite substance use treatment providing organizations to apply to participate in the Zero Suicide Academy®. The Zero Suicide Academy is a two-day training for implementation teams including senior leaders in health and behavioral health organizations that seek to dramatically reduce suicides among individuals in their care. Using the Zero Suicide framework, participants learn how to incorporate best and promising practices into their processes to improve care and safety for individuals at risk for suicide.

The Zero Suicide framework is a system-wide, organizational commitment to safer suicide care grounded in continuous quality improvement. It is a culture shift away from fragmented suicide care toward a holistic and comprehensive approach to safety and quality improvement – the most fundamental responsibility of health care – and to the safety and support of the staff who do the demanding work of treating and caring for individuals at risk for suicide. 

Eligibility: Eligibility is limited to health and behavioral healthcare organizations and hospitals providing substance use disorder treatment in Massachusetts. Space is limited. Applicants attend with a team of 4 individuals. Teams should include at least one senior leader from the organization as well as the person(s) responsible for implementation decisions
