Hospital emergency departments, primary care and behavioral health care organizations, public health agencies and tribal organizations may apply through March 30 for fiscal year 2020 grants to implement the Zero Suicide in Health Systems model. The Zero Suicide model is a multi-setting approach to suicide prevention in health systems, designed to raise awareness, establish referral processes, and improve care and outcomes for adults aged 25 and older who are at risk for suicide. SAMHSA plans to award up to 17 grants of up to $700,000 per year for up to five years.
