Help us save lives: Zero Suicide Corporate Challenge

In Indiana, more people die every year by suicide than by homicide, and the overall rate of suicide continues to dramatically climb. The statistics are alarming, and death by suicide is one of our state’s most concerning health issues. With support from our donors, Community Health Network is tackling this important issue by implementing a courageous plan to save the lives of our fellow Hoosiers.

Through our Zero Suicide Initiative, Community has established a commitment that none of our patients die by suicide. We realize that zero suicide may appear to be a bold goal, but when it comes to our patients, no other goal is acceptable. Our behavioral health experts have designed a plan to achieve a zero percent suicide incident rate for Community’s patients in the next ten years.

As part of this effort, Community has identified an immediate need for a suicide prevention safety room in our Inpatient Pediatric Unit located at Community Hospital North. Our team continues to see an increasing number of pediatric patients admitted from Community Health Network Emergency Departments for acts of intentional self-harm. Once admitted, it is imperative these young people have a space that minimizes any risk for self-harm and is fully equipped to meet their needs.

To that end, Community Health Network Foundation has launched a corporate challenge, engaging local businesses and rallying them to raise $75,000 before December 31, 2015 to outfit the pediatrics safety room and provide vital support to the Zero Suicide Initiative.

That’s where you come in. With Community’s expertise and your company’s investment, together, we can save lives. Suicide touches everyone—all ages and incomes; all racial, ethnic, and religious groups; and in all parts of our community. From families to employers, from neighbors to friends, its impact has a ripple effect, and the emotional toll on those left behind remains long after the death.

With each day that passes, the grief caused by suicide grows. You have the opportunity to change that. Join us today—there’s no time to waste.
