Technology Uses in Suicide Prevention Public Deposited

Suicide has been identified as one of the leading causes of death nationally and globally.

Because of the complex dynamics of risk factors that contribute to suicidal behavior, predicting

and preventing suicide death and attempts requires a varied and multidisciplinary approach.

New technologies can complement and provide new opportunities for existing suicide

prevention programs through enhanced data collection, identification of at-risk people and

technologies that connect people to needed resources. This paper presents an overview of

current technologies that have either been developed or are being adopted to aide in suicide

prevention at three levels of health care; Individual Providers, Hospital Systems and Public

Health/Population Systems.
