This report represents the findings and recommendations of the Clinical Care and Intervention Task Force to the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. The Task Force focused its deliberations and recommendations on care in four environments: (1) Emergency Departments and Medical-Surgical Units; (2) Primary Care and General Medical Settings; (3) Behavioral Health Entities; and (4) Crisis Services.
In addition to face-to-face service delivery, the Task Force has incorporated the growing use of technology to deliver care (e.g., telephone lines, e-help, texting, blogs, and social networks). An environmental scan focused on a number of programs that have garnered attention for their novel approaches and positive outcomes.
