The New Mexico Behavioral Health Collaborative, in partnership with the Zero Suicide Institute, proudly invites you to the:

New Mexico Zero Suicide Academy


The two day Academy will be held virtually on the 17th and 18th of May, 2023, from 8:30am MT to 4:30pm MT on the 17th and from 8:30am to 3:30pm on the 18th.


The New Mexico Zero Suicide Academy will provide you and your team of four with a deeper understanding of the Zero Suicide framework that has been utilized globally to create safer suicide care for people, families, and communities, including those in Indian Country, impacted by suicidal intensity. The Academy will also provide you with detailed explanations of the seven elements that make up the framework known as Zero Suicide and how these elements can be implemented both in general health and behavioral health care systems and those that are IHS-led and Tribally owned in New Mexico. At the end of this Academy, all participant teams will have an Action Plan that they can take back to their systems. This plan will detail ways in which you can begin to implement Zero Suicide in your work. 


Through a combination of stories from faculty who have implemented Zero Suicide in their own systems, and videos from expert suicidologists who have been promoting Zero Suicide as a framework since the beginning, you will leave not only with a sense of how this may be able to work in your own system and the steps you will need to take to prepare for implementation, but also what makes sense for the people, families, communities, Nations, and Pueblos you serve.


 Following the Academy, you will be able to participate in nine months of Communities of Practice. CoPs are 1.5 hour monthly sessions driven by the needs of those who attended the Academy and provide an even deeper dive into certain sections of the elements presented at the Academy. Some past CoPs include Safety Planning and Lethal Means Safety, Liability and Zero Suicide, Screening & Assessment, Risk Formulation, and other topics. 

 Informational Meeting: April 17th 2023, 1-2pm MT

 Date for Pre-Academy (one hour to orient Teams to the process): May 10th 2023, 1-2pm MT

 Dates for Academy - May 17th & 18th 2023, 8:30-4:30 each day

The Zero Suicide Academy application consists of:

  1. A letter of commitment written by the organization's CEO/Senior Executive Leader. The CEO/Senior Executive Leader should review and approve the submission and agree to the strategy proposed.
  2. A narrative that, in two to four pages, responds to the following:
  3. Briefly describe the members of your Zero Suicide implementation team and their relevant skills, knowledge, and experience.
  4. What are your team's goals for participating in the Zero Suicide Academy and what does the team hope to learn during the training?

Note: Zero Suicide implementation team members should include persons who can both champion Zero Suicide with passion and those who have some power and influence in your system. This can include clinical directors, senior clinical staff with coordination over a certain area or department, information technology, risk management or quality improvement, or person with lived experience.

A Zero Suicide Organizational Self-Study is to be completed by your implementation team members, along with your application.
