We Need To Talk About Suicide

Suicide is an emotionally charged topic. However, suicidal behavior disorder is a treatable condition, just like other mental and physical health conditions. This fundamental shift in how we think about suicide is the first step in redesigning suicide prevention and care. Read Beacon’s third white paper, “We Need to Talk About Suicide” to learn how the Zero Suicide model can help us to do just that.


Watch Beacon Health Options’ CEO Tim Murphy make the point that we must all start talking about suicide in this video introducing the release of Beacon’s 2017 White Paper, “We Need to Talk About Suicide”.

Follow along with Beacon clinical leaders as they share personal stories about suicide and discuss the Zero Suicide framework in a recent webinar on Beacon’s newest White Paper.

Listen to Beacon leaders discuss the white paper and how we can achieve integration through a collaborative care model.
