Hoosier mental health professionals are taking part in a national effort to spotlight suicide prevention.
Community Health Network Mental Health Counselor Kimble Richardson says 95-percent of suicides are linked to disorders that include depression, alcohol or drug abuse, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
Richardson says the "Zero Suicides in Healthcare" initiative aims to help the healthcare community provide better support for those at risk for suicide.
