Running Head: Assessment of Community2From last week’s discussion, I wanted to implement a model program for suicide and homicide prevention. During this model program I will have a suicide prevention number in place, as I mentioned last week, this thing kind of assist but the difference with mines will be once a patient dials the suicide prevention number GPS signals will than track the patient down to their exact address. A suicide prevention specialist will be on the phone with the patient immediately trying to talk the patient out of committing the suicide. The prevention specialist will stay on the phone with the patient however long it takes but what the patient does not know is Police and EMT are already in route to their home and willing to force entry if necessary. Oncethe emergency personnel is there they will take the patient to the nearest hospital and/or mental health institution to be evaluated. During their evaluation they will speak with a mental health counselor and psychiatrist to try to get an idea what is going on in the patient’s life that makes the patient want to harm or even commit suicide. They will than meet with the patient twice a day to talk about their thoughts and how they are feeling. Some people just need a listening ear and not someone to judge them.
