Dr. Eli Merritt Launches Bay Area Suicide Risk Project

Eli MerrittFormer Stanford resident Dr. Eli Merritt, responding to the fragmented nature of the mental health care system, most notably diminished acute and subacute psychiatric services, launched the Bay Area Suicide Risk Project in the fall of 2014. The project is designed to identify, describe, and share with all interested individuals and organizations vital suicide-related resources to help both health care professionals and concerned family members navigate risk. Most recently, he and his research team released two of three Bay Area wide resource directories, Suicide Risk Emergency Services and Hotlines and Mobile Crisis Services. The third directory, expected in April, will focus on treatment.
