The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is launching an initiative called 'Reach Vet' to help prevent suicides and be more responsive to the mental health needs of patients. The new program was launched at the Bay Pines VA Health Care System in April, 2017. The program identifies the top one percent of veterans at risk just by reviewing the health records of veterans. These names are provided to the clinicians so they can reengage the veterans or enhance their care so they can reduce the risk of suicide. The suicide prevention team at Bay Pines is using analytic tools, outpatient care and education to reduce that number of veterans' suicides to zero. For more information, read the article.
