Running Head: SUICIDE 1Assessment of Community-Level BarriersSuicide and Homicide PreventionMaryalice Wood HCA430: Special PopulationsInstructor Jennifer MavesOctober 28, 2018
SUICIDE 2To add onto the previous week's paper, this will talk about the implementation of a model program for suicide and homicide prevention. During the discussion of the model program, there will be a suicide prevention number that will be provided and in place, as discussed previously. It will assist with prevention. However, the difference with this one is that once someone dials the number to the suicide prevention line, a GPS signal will track the location of wherethe individual is located and alert the authorities. The specialist will stay on the phone with the individual trying to talk to them and prevent them from killing themselves or harming themselves. They will remain on the phone the entire time ittakes the police and EMT’s to arrive at the location, and they will not alert the person that this is happening. Upon arriving at the site and assessing the severity and the health of the individual they will then transport them to the nearest hospitalor mental/behavioral health facility to be further evaluated. During this time the person will speak to a licensed counselor and psychiatrist so that they can get an idea as to what could be happening in the person’s life that might want to make them harm themselves or commit suicide. They will meet with the individual two times a day so that they can talk about their thoughts and feelings. People need someone they can open up to that will listen to them and not judge them.
