ReDiscover's Show Me Zero Youth Suicide

Suicide Is 100% Preventable

The Show Me Zero Youth Suicide Initiative is a collaboration among behavioral health providers to drastically reduce suicides and suicide attempts in youth ages 10-24 by focusing on prevention and early intervention. The Zero Youth Suicide initiative has a special emphasis on those at higher risk of suicide.

How Does the Program Work?
  1. At the request of a hospital, school, or in response to a crisis call the Show Me Zero Youth Suicide team is contacted.

  2. With permission from the youth and the youth's guardian (if under 18) the suicide prevention case manager will:
    • immediately help stabilize the youth
    • explain the Show Me Youth 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 resources that promote self-care and wellness.
Program Goals
  • Improve the system of care for suicidal youth who use hospital emergency rooms, in-patient psychiatric facilities, and/or crisis hotlines.
  • Enhance and expand early intervention and prevention efforts in schools and universities.
  • Strengthen prevention efforts for youth who are not in school by providing training and outreach to youth-serving organizations.
  • Youth ages 10-24
  • Reside and/or attend schools in the Kansas City metropolitan area
  • Suicidal thoughts or ideation
