Zero Suicide

Community Care is committed to the safety and wellness of our members, employees, and community. We have made a commitment to individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts, with a hope to make suicide a “never event.” The Zero Suicide project is a comprehensive approach developed by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. We join our providers and community partners who have also been working to reduce suicide in our state. Other organizations that have implemented Zero Suicide have seen a significant decrease in suicide deaths. This initiative includes training every employee in QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer), a suicide prevention training curriculum that teaches every person the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. A cross-company team is developing a comprehensive plan to engage physical health and behavioral health providers that serve HealthChoices members in Zero Suicide and will offer targeted training for the provider community.
