The AMICUS Invitational will benefit suicide prevention in Utah through Intermountain Healthcare’s efforts to support suicide prevention and substance abuse.
Suicide is a major preventable public health problem in Utah and causes immeasurable pain to individuals, families, and communities. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Utah has the fifth highest suicide rate in the country. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for adults in Utah aged 18 to 44, and the incidence of death by suicide is much higher among males. The prevention of suicide is complex and requires a multi-sectored and comprehensive approach, which includes improving access to behavioral health treatment. Mental illness and substance use dramatically increases the risk for suicide, but timely access to appropriate behavioral healthcare can reduce the likelihood of a death by suicide.
Estimates show 242,000 Utah adults could benefit from treatment for mental illness and substance use disorders; however, only 20 percent are receiving behavioral healthcare. Intermountain Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Networks create access to timely behavioral health follow-up care (within seven days as opposed to weeks and months in most cases) for low-income patients discharged from an Intermountain facility. We thank you for your continued support of these networks as we continue to try and counter the heartbreaking realities of suicide in Utah.
