National and CT data, and studies show that many individuals who die by suicide had recently been in health or behavioral health care treatment.  Therefore, these providers and settings are key gatekeepers for individuals at risk of suicide. They may advance their existing efforts to increase identification, referral, access to care, care coordination, and follow-up post discharge of individuals at risk through the use of various evidence-based strategies, practices, tools and policies, and by ensuring that clinical and professional staff are trained and educated appropriately. The following are some examples of recommended resources:
