Summary of the Project:

This study will determine the causal effects of hospital-CBO partnerships on hospital readmissions and mortality for the leading mental health and injury-related causes of death (suicidal ideation or suicides) and the leading physical cause of death (heart attack). Findings have the potential to inform how, where, and for whom targeted hospital partnerships with CBOs can reduce hospital readmission and mortality.
