Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA local and state health agencies, tribes, tribal organizations, health care organizations, and emergency departments for behavioral healthcare programs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to implement suicide prevention and intervention programs.

The Zero Suicide model is a comprehensive, multi-setting approach to suicide prevention in health systems. The purpose of this program is to implement suicide prevention and intervention programs for individuals who are 25 years of age or older. This program is designed to raise awareness of suicide, establish referral processes, and improve care and outcomes for such individuals who are at risk for suicide. Recipients will implement the Zero Suicide model throughout their health system. 

The Zero Suicide model has seven essential elements of suicide care:

  • Lead - Create a leadership-driven, safety-oriented culture committed to dramatically reducing suicide among people under care. Include survivors of suicide attempts and suicide loss in leadership and planning roles;
  • Train - Develop a competent, confident, and caring workforce;
  • Identify - Systematically identify and assess suicide risk among people receiving care;
  • Engage - Ensure every individual has a pathway to care that is both timely and adequate to meet his or her needs. Include collaborative safety planning and restriction of lethal means;
  • Treat - Use effective, evidence-based treatments that directly target suicidal thoughts and behaviors;
  • Transition - Provide continuous contact and support, especially after acute care; and
  • Improve - Apply a data-driven, quality improvement approach to inform system changes that will lead to improved patient outcomes and better care for those at risk.

By addressing all elements of the Zero Suicide model, health care providers will transform their health system to one that is ready to identify, treat, refer, and ensure continuity of care for individuals at risk for suicide and suicidal behaviors.
