Every 20 hours a person dies by suicide in Iowa. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for 25- to 44-year-olds exceeded only by unintentional injury. Iowa has taken steps to implement effective suicide prevention strategies through previous funding opportunities and existing partnerships like the Iowa Suicide Prevention Planning Group. The Zero Suicide process will create suicide safe organizations across Iowa that will be better positioned to support patients at risk for suicide in a safe and least restrictive manner.
