Transforming Health Systems Implementation

This group was created to advance the Action Alliance priority area of transforming health systems. The group works to devise strategies that result in the scale up of Zero Suicide in health care, enhancement of follow-up care, training of the health care workforce, improvements to the financing of suicide care, and increase the availability of care during a crisis to treat individuals at risk.
