About Us


Sweetser is Maine’s leading behavioral health care organization dedicated to serving children, adults and families in need of services for mental health, recovery and education. Today, Sweetser is pleased to partner with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention to bring you comprehensive Suicide-Safer Care training, powered by Relias.



What is Zero Suicide? The Zero Suicide (ZS) Initiative is based on the idea that suicide deaths are preventable for people under care, and promotes a framework to help guide health and behavioral health care systems in their effort to commit to suicide prevention system-wide. The framework contains a specific set of tools and strategies, utilizes a comprehensive approach including policies specific to suicide care and core components of suicide-safer care. 

There are seven key elements to the Zero Suicide framework: Lead, Train, Identify, Engage, Treat, Transition and Improve. Our hope is that by offering this easily accessible free online resource, we support the second element, Train. Our goal is to ensure all health and behavioral health care providers have access to and are trained in the most up-to-date evidence-based trainings in suicide-safe care, and that ultimately, all health and behavioral health system personnel have the confidence in their ability to provide effective care and support to individuals with suicide risk.
