ReDiscover's Show Me Zero Suicide
ADULT SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM


Suicide Is 100% Preventable

The Show Me Zero Suicide Initiative is a collaboration among behavioral health providers to drastically reduce suicides and suicide attempts in adults ages 25 and older by focusing on prevention and early intervention. The initiative has special emphasis on clients who are at higher risk for suicide.

How Does the Program Work?

1. At the request of a hospital or in response to a crisis call, the Show Me Zero Suicide team is contacted.

2. With permission from the client the suicide prevention case manager will:

  • immediately help stabilize the client
  • explain the Show Me Zero Suicide Initiative
  • perform an assessment

3. The case manager will provide a bridge to services including: short-term intensive case management, connection to long-term care and supports that promote self-care.

  • Improve the system of care for suicidal adults who use hospital emergency rooms, in-patient psychiatric facilities and/or crisis hotlines.
