Supporting your need to know and understand more about behavioral health and suicide prevention
Our goal is to not only put a spotlight on a problem that claimed the lives of too many New Hampshire residents last year, but also examine how prevention can and does work, and offer resources to help those who may be in crisis. According to a government study, suicide rates in New Hampshire rose nearly 50% over a 17 year period (1999 – 2016).
The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide deaths for individuals under the care of health and behavioral health systems are preventable. For systems dedicated to improving patient safety, Zero Suicide presents an aspirational challenge and practical framework for system-wide transformation toward safer suicide care. Here at The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester, we have adopted the Zero Suicide challenge.
