Room 1: The WHY Universal Zero Suicide Values, Rights and Principles. Zero Suicide is a transformative systems approach to suicide prevention based on three core components: culture, processes and practices ZS originated in US behavioral health care systems. The question is how ZS and its components could be defined in a set of universal values, principles and rights that would be acceptable and transformative worldwide; including in countries with other health care systems; Low And Middle Income countries (LAMICS); or in regions with different cultures and attitudes towards suicide.

Room 2: THE WHO Leadership, Culture, and Commitment to Zero. Culture and leadership form the basis for ZS as a transformative approach to suicide prevention: the system-wide commitment to the aspirational goal of zero suicides implies a radical move away from passive acceptance of suicide towards active prevention of suicide. This means overcoming skepticism, fears, and reluctances that often surround suicide prevention in health care organizations and communities. Here, leadership on all levels within the organization is of paramount importance.

Room 3: THE WHAT Zero Suicide Specific Clinical Practices in behavioral mental health care The second Zero Suicide core component consists of suicide specific practices offered to (all) persons/patients at risk of suicide starting before entrance in health care and ending after discharge from healthcare. Persons/patients that are potentially at risk of suicide are proactively identified in order to engage them in suicide specific treatments with careful monitoring of their suicidality during and after (transitions in) treatment.

Room 4: THE HOW: Zero Suicide implementation, and continual improvement Improvement of the safety and quality of care process is the third Zero Suicide core component. This component is strongly rooted in the idea that everyone in healthcare has two jobs: their job and the job of improving their job. This implies implementation of new (Zero Suicide) routines and standards; outcome monitoring and quality assurance; and cycles of (data-driven) learning and improvement.

Room 5: WITH WHOM: Zero Suicide and community/public health suicide prevention The core value driving Zero Suicide is that every life counts and that no one deserves to die alone and in despair by suicide. This value not only applies to patients in behavioral mental health care but to all people in the world. In addition, suicide is a complex phenomenon. Safety science tells that its prevention should target determinants on different levels, with overlapping safety measures. Thus, to move towards a world without suicide, specialist (mental) healthcare suicide prevention efforts have to be combined with public and community based prevention efforts. 16.30 - 16.45 Short break and move from subrooms to 44
