... "We go back to the model and explain why this is a critical element of treatment and what role it serves." Another feature of the common elements of effective interventions is they are relatively simple and straightforward, though they may be delivered differently by individuals and organization with different theoretical perspectives. The one modification Rudd suggested is that, as part of safety planning, health care providers teach people how to ask for help.

... , cited the need to fund both research and service delivery. "Suicide prevention, and in particular suicide prevention in people with serious mental illness, is grossly underfunded in order to get the comprehensive approaches that are needed to meaningfully move the needle." One concrete idea emerging from the workshop is bundled payments to help align financing with the desired outcomes.

... We have to get out there and do it, not just talk about it, not just publish, but get out there and do it." COLLABORATION AND TRAINING Nadine Kaslow, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine, wondered why the two main topics discussed at the workshop -- suicide prevention and serious mental illness -- remain such different worlds when they overlap so extensively. A major way to reduce the distance between them is to create collaborations among stakeholders that represent suicide prevention and the treatment of serious mental illness.

She observed that the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is well posi­ tioned to advocate for changes like bundled payments for postdischarge care, to cooperatively fund research related to suicide prevention, and to catalyze health systems to implement suicide prevention training and system changes.
