New Resources from Suicide Prevention Resource Center


The Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) is pleased to announce the release of Prevention in Practice: Care Transitions at New Hampshire Hospital. This success story details how the National Alliance on Mental Illness New Hampshire (NAMI NH) and New Hampshire Hospital established a program to help youth inpatients safely transition between the hospital, other health care settings, and their community. Read how they got the program off the ground, sustained it long-term, and leveraged key partnerships for success.

Research has shown that a patient’s suicide risk increases immediately after discharge from an inpatient hospitalization—providing follow-up support to the patient at this time can help reduce risk. Learn how supporting safe care transitions is a key part of a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention.
