Suicide Prevention Initiative
The Nebraska Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative is working to decrease the suicide rate among young people in Nebraska. To learn more about us and about the efforts funded in Nebraska through the Garret Lee Smith Memorial Act, visit our about page.
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.
