Official Title: Missouri Suicide Response for COVID-19 Project

MIMH is evaluating the effectiveness of a suicide prevention program designed to serve adults 25 and older who are at risk for suicide living in counties with high rates of COVID-19 and domestic violence. This SAMHSA-funded grant is directed by the Missouri Department of Mental Health with services provided by Behavioral Health Response and Compass Health Network. Suicidal individuals contact these providers who immediately provide them with crisis intervention services and route them to mental health services either within their own agency or appropriate mental health service providers. Desired outcomes include reductions in suicides, suicide attempts, hospitalizations, suicidal ideation and domestic violence.
