Suicide Prevention/Mental Health Research - School of Social Work

The FL LEADS project is a five-year, federally funded grant seeking to transform and improve suicide care practices, standards, and outcomes in health/behavioral health systems throughout rural and urban counties in northeast, northwest, central, and west Florida. Rooted in cultural competency and evidence-based research, this multi-system approach will implement the Zero Suicide (ZS) model. FL LEADS aims to reduce health disparities and inequalities that affect the lives of adults, ages 25 years and older, at risk for suicide and/or experiencing behavioral health disorders, serious mental illnesses, and substance abuse addictions.
