Why are we providing these trainings?


VT’s rate of suicide deaths per 100,000 people was 18.9 in 2016 (Centers for Disease Control, WISQARS, 2016)—higher than the national average and the highest in New England. Rural counties in the U.S. have consistently had higher suicide rates than metropolitan counties from 2001 to 2015, according to the CDC. Higher fatality rates in rural areas reflect the challenges inherent in the assessment and delivery of care in communities where providers are stretched thin, services tend to be more segregated than integrated, and geographically isolated populations tend to have less education and lower incomes—both barriers to heath care access.  


 


 




 


About the Rutland Suicide Safer Care Project Training Series


The Rutland Safe Suicide Care Project will reduce barriers to accessing suicide safe care in the Rutland area by identifying system gaps and opportunities, building infrastructure for a collaborative, integrated system of care, and improving knowledge and skills among behavioral health providers, primary care practitioners, and hospital inpatient and Emergency Departments in the Rutland area. The project will target residents in Rutland County, focusing on reaching residents through three mediums: Mental Health Services; Primary and Preventive Care Services; and Emergency Departments.
