Suicide Awareness

Zero Suicide and NJH

National Jewish Health participates in the Zero Suicide initiative as a HQIP measure since 2021. 
The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide deaths in health care systems are preventable.

Organizations who adopt the Zero Suicide framework are:

  • embedding evidence-based elements as a bundle of interventions focused on reducing suicide;
  • collecting data to measure both outcomes as well as fidelity to use of these interventions;
  • conducting continuous quality improvement to educate staff and improve performance weaknesses;
  • normalizing suicide prevention and care practices for staff, people at risk, and their families as the expected standard of care.
