Preventing Suicides in Fond du Lac County
Destination Zero was an initiative that aimed to reduce the number of suicides in Fond du Lac County to ZERO by promoting collaboration across sectors (clinical providers, area employers, veteran service groups, education, and service agencies) to ensure that policies and procedures are in place across the county which lead to better care for those at risk of suicide. Read the parting thoughts of the coordinator of this initiaitve HERE.
Suicide is preventable, and help is available.
Continuing the Work
CSI’s Prevent Suicide Fond du Lac County committee played a lead role in implementing several components of the Destination Zero initiative and has continued to carry on the work. To learn more about the committee’s activities and meetings, and sign-up for the email list, CLICK HERE.
Key objectives in our efforts to achieve this aspirational “Destination Zero” goal include:
Reduce stigma around suicide and mental health which can limit help-seeking behaviors
Promote the use of a common language for communicating about suicide and suicide prevention
Partner with individuals who have lived experience to develop more effective intervention strategies
Develop a universal approach to identify, refer, assess, treat and monitor those who are at risk
