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 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
