Five Ohioans die by suicide every day. Historically, the social service and related fields have been taught individuals experiencing suicidal ideation disengage from services and isolate themselves. The CareSource Ohio Behavioral Health team recently pulled claims data that identifies the contrary:
The appointments prior to a suicide attempt are potential opportunities for suicide screening that could lead to referrals for resources, crisis intervention, and possibly prevent suicide attempts. The Behavioral Health team would like to share CareSource claims data and facilitate conversations with stakeholders around the state. They want to gather feedback and information to identify ways to support providers around the state on how to incorporate suicide prevention strategies.
