Nearly 46,000 Americans Died by Suicide in 2020. Emergency Nurses Can Help!
For years, suicidal patients have gone unidentified while receiving care in our nation's emergency departments. 

From 2000 to 2018, the national suicide rate grew by 36 percent. Since early last year, job loss, social isolation and other stressors heightened by COVID-19 have contributed to a growing mental health crisis. As life begins to return to normal, many emergency nurses are already noticing a rise in mental and behavioral health crises in their facilities, as the fallout from the global coronavirus pandemic continues to be felt.

The House of Representatives recently passed ENA-priority legislation to improve the identification and treatment of suicidal patients in the ED. Now is the Senate’s turn to act.

Tell your senators to support and cosponsor the Effective Suicide Screening and Effectiveness in the Emergency Department (S. 467) today!
