Call for system reform to reduce suicides while in care

26 March 2014
A new approach is required to more effectively support people who are suicidal while in health care according to Mr David Covington, co-lead of the American Clinical Care and Intervention Task Force and one of the authors of the report Suicide Care In Systems Framework. Mr Covington, in Sydney this week as a guest of Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA), will discuss with those working in mental health and suicide prevention the changes that are required to achieve zero suicide deaths in health care.
