UMass Center for Suicide Prevention

The UMass Center for Suicide Prevention is dedicated to preventing suicide by accelerating delivery of evidence-based, compassionate suicide care across all healthcare settings where patients who are at risk for suicide are treated. The Center is led by Edwin Boudreaux, PhD { }, a clinical psychologist who has helped pioneer health systems transformation toward support of suicide risk identification, management, and treatment. The Center embraces both the need for strong evidence-base approaches and compassionate, patient-centered care. To do so, it not only brings together renowned clinical and research experts, it actively seeks to incorporate a range of stakeholders’ perspectives, including practicing clinicians and patients and family with lived experience. The Center primarily focuses on fostering research endeavors focused on translation and implementation into routine clinical practice. Center leadership does this through building rich transdisciplinary networks, advising on cutting edge research methodology, and facilitating the preparation of outstanding grant applications and research protocols.
